Installing the Java Cryptography Extension on JSA


The Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) is a Java framework that is required for JSA to decrypt advanced cryptography algorithms for AES192 or AES256. The following information describes how to install Oracle JCE on your JSA appliance.

  1. Download the latest version of the Java Cryptography Extension from the following website:

    The Java Cryptography Extension version must match the version of the Java installed on JSA.

  2. Extract the JCE file.

    The following Java archive (JAR) files are included in the JCE download:

    • local_policy.jar

    • US_export_policy.jar

  3. Log in to your JSA Console or JSA Event Collector as a root user.
  4. Copy the JCE JAR files to the following directory on your JSA Console or Event Collector:



    The JCE JAR files are only copied to the system that receives the AES192 or AE256 encrypted files.

  5. Restart the JSA services by typing one of the following commands:
    • If you are using JSA 2014.x, type service ecs-ec restart.

    • If you are using JSA 7.3.0, type systemctl restart ecs-ec.service..

    • If you are using JSA 7.3.1, type type systemctl restart ecs-ec-ingress.service..
