Optionally enable AES 256-bit encryption

If you want to use AES 256-bit encryption, you must install the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) jurisdiction policy files by copying them into each Edge Encryption proxy installation directory.

About this task

Edge Encryption ships with the AES 128-bit policy files, which you must overwrite with the AES 256-bit policy files. It is only necessary to download the JCE once, but every Edge Encryption proxy must be updated.

Procedure

  1. Download the JCE policy 8 ZIP file from Oracle.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. On each proxy server, copy the local_policy.jar and US_export_policy.jar files into the <proxy-dir>/java/jre/lib/security folder.
