Error description

  • Error Message: When you try to verify a JAR which is signed with
    MessageDigest algorithms SHA256, SHA384 or SHA512, we get the
    following error with Java 6:
    jar is unsigned. (signatures missing or not parsable)
    With Java 7, it says the JAR is verified, but we get the warning
    shown below:
    jar verified.
    Warning:
    This jar contains unsigned entries which have not been
    integrity-checked
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The problem is caused as the BootstrapProvider which is used
    during JAR verification, did not contain these algorithms in its
    list of supported algorithms.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    6.0.0 SR13
    6.0.1 SR7
    7.0.0 SR4
    .
    The JDK has been updated to add the SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512
    algorithms to the list of supported algorithms in
    BootstrapProvider.
