Problem summary

  • The CertPath validator's certificate expiration check has been
    enhanced.
    Ordinarily, the CertPath validator checks whether the timestamp
    specified within the PKIXParameters object
    falls within the validity period of each certificate checked.
    New logic has been added to check whether the parameters passed
    to the CertPath validator are an instance of
    PKIXExtendedParameters.
    If so, and if the PKIXExtendedParameters carry a variant that
    specifies VAR_CODE_SIGNING or VAR_PLUGIN_CODE_SIGNING, then the
    timestamp specified within the PKIXExtendedParameters is used
    instead.
    The associated RTC PR is 137546
    The associated Austin CMVC defect is 117847
    The affected jar is "ibmcertpathprovider.jar".
    JDKS affected include: Java 7.0, Java 7.1, and Java 8.0.

    FP30, and Java 8.0 SR5 FP20
    The build level of this jar for the affected releases is
