*OpenJDK 8* now supports ECC
With this update, support for Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) and associated ciphers for TLS connections has been added to *OpenJDK 8*. In most cases, ECC is preferable to older cryptographic solutions for establishing secure network connections.
This is a clone of bug 1208307 which makes the same change on RHEL 6.
It follows bug 1121210 which added elliptic curve cryptography support in OpenJDK 7 for RHEL 7.2.
Can I ask what is happening with this bug fix?
It says it is fixed in version java-1.8.0-openjdk-126.96.36.199-4.b15.el7 but we are already on version java-1.8.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52-1.b14.el7_2 and ECC is still disabled.
The fix is scheduled for release in RHEL 7.3.
java-1.8.0-openjdk-184.108.40.206-4.b15.el7 is a RHEL 7.3 RPM.
java-1.8.0-openjdk-220.127.116.11-1.b14.el7_2 is a RHEL 7.2 RPM.
