+Derby authentication schemes (for example, LDAP). Also, this security mechanism uses the
SHA1PRNG algorithm to generate a random number that gets exchanged between client and server.
If you need to use this security mechanism, make sure that support for the SHA1PRNG algorithm
is available in the JCE provider available with your JVM. For example, it is available with
JVM version 1.4.1 and higher from Sun and with JVM version 1.4.2 and higher from IBM.</entry>
