java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError: java.lang.SecurityException: Cannot set up certs for trusted CAs

I get the above error when i access it from a client machine.

When i have the Server as localhost and cleint access from the same PC has no problem code works fine.

Weblogic 6.1
bea/jdk131/jre/ext/ i have copied all four files as bea/jdk131 is the JAVA_HOME path.

Also i have made this jar downloadable along witht the client program using JSP
<PARAM NAME="cache_archive" VALUE="

i still get the above error What is the mistake i am doing?
Kindly help out.

Code is as follows!!

       new com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE());
      KeyGenerator kg = KeyGenerator.getInstance ("DES");
      kg.init (new SecureRandom ());
      SecretKey key = kg.generateKey ();
      SecretKeyFactory skf = SecretKeyFactory.getInstance ("DES");
      Class spec = Class.forName ("javax.crypto.spec.DESKeySpec");
      DESKeySpec ks = (DESKeySpec)skf.getKeySpec (key , spec);
      ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream (new FileOutputStream ("C:/e_Communicator/Auth/keyfile"));
      oos.writeObject (ks.getKey ());

      Cipher c = Cipher.getInstance ("DES/CBC/PKCS5Padding");
      c.init (Cipher.ENCRYPT_MODE , key);
      CipherOutputStream cos = new CipherOutputStream (new FileOutputStream ("C:/e_Communicator/Auth/Authfile") , c);
      PrintWriter pw = new PrintWriter (new OutputStreamWriter (cos));
      String input = jtx_UserID.getText () + ":" + jtx_UserNM.getText () + ":" + jtx_UserKey.getText () + ":" +
                 entitySetCurDate.getValueAt ("CURR_DATE").toString ();
      System.out.println (input);
      pw.println (input);
      pw.close ();
      oos.writeObject (c.getIV ());
      oos.close ();

The JDK/JRE used by weblogic is different from the one that you use on the command line.

Check the security file ( for that JDK available under \lib\security and make changes if required for the provider you are using. Also check the classpath used by Weblogic. If required edit the startweblogic.cmd file to include the required files in the classpath. You can put the required files (generally jce1_2_1.jar and sunjce_provider.jar) in the \lib\ext of the jdk used by weblogic.

Here are the details I found:

1. Go to $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security directory
2. You should find the file
3. Edit the file to add the following line to the list of providers:


The new list looks like this:

# List of providers and their preference orders (see above):

This adds the provider SunJCE to the list of providers.

4. Copy the following files to jre/lib/ext directory:


That should work like a charm.

Hi Tried all the things above before posting but doesnt work still.
Security modified,Policy modified files copied and also have set class path in weblogic. yet client gets the error!
While using jre1.3.

Hi i found the problem is cause the client doesnt have the copy of the 4 jar files in the jre installed folder that is java.home/lib/ext in the client side when i copied the 4 jars in the client and tested it worked.

how do it set the server so that these jars are automatically copied to the client machine? I have done the above setting explained by Sudhakar.

And closely following and doing the settings i do not get the error
"java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError: java.lang.SecurityException: Cannot set up certs for trusted CAs"

But i get
      at javax.crypto.KeyGenerator.getInstance(DashoA6275)
