The Security Properties panel looks like in the screenshot below:
Here are displayed detailed information about the Java Virtual Machine's security settings:
Policy Status - what kind of Java security policy is installed on the
system, if the unlimited strength jurisdiction policy files are installed;
It also provides a wizard for automatic installation of the unlimited strength jurisdiction policy files. In order to use this feature, you must click on the "Install" button.
This feature is available only when using Oracle's Java Virtual Machine version 1.7.0_13 or later on the platforms supporting JavaFX (for example JavaFX is not supported on SunOS);
If the unlimited strength jurisdiction policy files are already installed on the system, this button will be disabled.
An integrated JavaFX web browser window will be displayed and you will be driven to the official Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files Download page.
The usage of these files is under the import restrictions of some countries, so it is the user's responsibility to decide if (s)he is entitled to use them. Assuming you have the rights to download these security files, you must click to accept the "Oracle Binary Code License Agreement for the Java SE Platform Products" and then click on the "zip" file to trigger the download the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files.
The installation process is automatic, so no other action is required. At the end, a message confirming installation will be displayed.
The installation process needs administrative rights, as it needs to write the new JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files. If not, the process will fail, showing an error message and instructions on how to manually write the policy files, but CERTivity is still assisting you here:
After clicking "Open folders" button, two folders will be opened:
The folder containing the new JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files which were just downloaded from Oracle's site;
The Java Security folder, where the old policy files are located.
You will have to manually copy the files from the first folder into the Java Security folder, overwriting old ones.
Remember to first make a backup of the old policy files, just in case you will need them somewhere in the future.
After that, you will need to restart CERTivity in order for the changes to take effect. You should now see, in the "Advanced Details" panel, that the Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files are installed, as in the screenshot below:
Policy Files - the system's currently installed policy files.
