Solution to failing Configuration.getConfiguration() in Java

Sometimes the calling javax.security.auth.login.Configuration.getConfiguration() fails with SecurityException in our tests (both Oracle and IBM).

A quick solution (without touching JDK installation or configuring java.security.auth.login.config system property) is simple. Just create an empty file .java.login.config in your user home directory (more info in ConfigFile JavaDoc). Thats it!

touch ~/.java.login.config

Just to make the picture complete, here is the stack trace we see on IBM JDK:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.SecurityException: Unable to locate a login configuration

Thanks for the JSignPdf!
It would be nice if you update iText Core from version 2 up to version 5. What are the differences? Many! http://itextpdf.com/functionalitycomparison

Also... can you add to the TSA/OCSP/CRL options the "NONCE" option as some time stamping servers my require it to prevent key replay attacks.

Three ways to redirect HTTP requests to HTTPs in WildFly and JBoss EAP

WildFly application server (and JBoss EAP) supports several simple ways how to redirect the communication from plain HTTP to TLS protected HTTPs. This article presents 3 ways. Two are on the application level and the last one is on the server level valid for requests to all deployments. 1. Request confidentiality in the deployment descriptor The first way is based on the Servlet specification. You need to specify which URLs should be protected in the web.xml deployment descriptor. It's the same approach as the one used for specifying which URLs require authentication/authorization. Just instead of requesting an assigned role, you request a transport-guarantee . Sample content of the WEB-INF/web.xml <web-app xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_3_1.xsd" version="3.1

JSignPKCS11 - when your smartcard is too smart

TL;DR Yes, you can add digital signatures in Java even when you use newer hardware tokens such as Gemalto SafeNet eToken 5110 CC. JSignPKCS11 might help. Maybe you've seen the infamous PKCS11 error message CKR_USER_NOT_LOGGED_IN already. Thrown even when the SunPKCS11 security provider and the keystore settings were properly configured for your hardware token. java.security.ProviderException: sun.security.pkcs11.wrapper.PKCS11Exception: CKR_USER_NOT_LOGGED_IN at jdk.crypto.cryptoki/sun.security.pkcs11.P11Signature.engineSign(P11Signature.java:685) at java.base/java.security.Signature$Delegate.engineSign(Signature.java:1404) at java.base/java.security.Signature.sign(Signature.java:713) ...

Simple TLS certificates in WildFly 18

It's just 2 weeks when WildFly 18 was released. It includes nice improvements in TLS certificates handling through ACME protocol (Automatic Certificate Management Environment), it greatly simplifies obtaining valid HTTPS certificates. There was already a support for the Let's Encrypt CA in WildFly 14 as Farah Juma described in her blog post last year. New WildFly version allows using other CA-s with ACME protocol support. It also adds new switch --lets-encrypt to interactive mode of security enable-ssl-http-server JBoss CLI commands. Let's try it. Before we jump on WildFly configuration, let's just mention the HTTPs can be used even in the default configuration and a self-signed certificate is generated on the fly. Nevertheless, it's not secure and you should not use it for any other purpose than testing. Use Let's Encrypt signed certificate for HTTPs application interface Start WildFly on a machine with the public IP address. Run it on the defaul
