The Solaris security packages allow for a number of cryptography providers. Java SE uses the PKCS11 provider by default. However, there can be some times when the PKCS11 provider fails to work properly with certain Java applications. Common problems are hangs or crashes in PKCS11 functions or the Java methods that call into the Solaris PKCS11 functions. These failures can be caused by Solaris/PKCS11 bugs, Java bugs, or application code.
This document describes how to disable PKCS11 so that the Sun crypto provider is used in its stead.
