But if You change server from JBoss to other (for example Glassfish) You have the same problem.
The better solition for me are changes in jdk.
You shoud add Bouncy Castle to security providers on Your java platform in two steps:
1. Copy BC librarys (currently bcpkix-jdk15on-149.jar, bcprov-jdk15on-149.jar) to directory $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext/
2. Register BC provider: edit file $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/java.security and under line

add Your BC provider

Change numbers of rest providers. The whole block of providers should be similar to:


Sorry, You don’t need change providers. Just add under SunPCSC provider next number of providers such as:


BC provider does not have to be the second. Might be the last. – Krzysztof Szewczyk Jul 5 ’13 at 10:08
