Subject [jira] Updated: (DIRSERVER-877) BouncyCastle IP issues with IDEA algo included in jars
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2007 20:56:32 GMT


David Jencks updated DIRSERVER-877:

    Attachment: DIRSERVER-877-2.patch

Rick added the necessary classes to geronimo-util, and I deployed a snapshot to the apache
snapshot repo.

The attached patch makes apacheds build without bouncy-castle jars and all the integration
tests pass.  The only drawback I can see is that it uses a snapshot version.

I can see 2 choices here:
- I could try to get the changes into geronimo 1.2 which may get released soon (we are waiting
only for a couple other releases)
- At the end of the month we are expecting to push geronimo 2.0-M4

> The BouncyCastle jars contains some classes which implement the IDEA algorithm, abusivly
patented by a company, which thinks that patenting algorithm is a good way to make money.
> We should get these classes out of the jar, or use the Geronimo jar instead
