wolfSSL Announces the wolfJSSE Provider

wolfSSL, the leading provider of TLS cryptography and the world’s first commercial release of TLS 1.3, announces the wolfJSSE Provider.

wolfSSL, the leading provider of TLS cryptography and the world’s first commercial release of TLS 1.3, announces the wolfJSSE Provider. The Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) framework supports the installation of security providers. These providers can implement a subset of the functionality used by the Java JSSE security APIs, including SSL/TLS. The wolfJSSE Provider wraps the native wolfSSL SSL/TLS library. With this provider, users can leverage all the advantages of native wolfSSL from Java applications. These advantages include TLS 1.3 support, performance optimizations, hardware cryptography support, FIPS 140-2 validation, and much more.

“The JSSE Provider allows Java developers the ability to leverage the wolfSSL SSL/TLS implementation for secure communication, providing both a Java JSSE Provider and JNI wrapper around the native wolfSSL library” said wolfSSL Founder & CTO, Todd Ouska. “This interface gives Java applications access to all the benefits of using wolfSSL, including current SSL/TLS standards up to TLS 1.3 and DTLS 1.2, FIPS 140-2 support, performance optimizations, hardware cryptography support, and more.”

The wolfSSL JSSE provider (wolfJSSE) is distributed along with the wolfSSL JNI wrapper. Version 1.5.0 is now available from the wolfSSL download page (wolfssl-jni-jsse-1.5.0.zip). wolfJSSE has currently been tested on several JDK’s, including Oracle JDK, OpenJDK, Android OSP, and Zulu JDK. If you would like to use wolfJSSE on a different JDK or platform, let us know at facts@wolfssl.com

wolfSSL is a lightweight TLS/SSL library that is targeted for embedded devices and systems. It has support for the TLS 1.3 protocol, which is a secure protocol for transporting data between devices and across the Internet. In addition, wolfSSL uses the wolfCrypt encryption library to handle its data encryption.

wolfSSL’s software is available under two distinct licensing models: open source and standard commercial licensing. Businesses and enterprises who wish to incorporate wolfSSL products into proprietary appliances or other commercial software products for redistribution must license commercial versions. wolfSSL is the first to offer a commercial release of TLS 1.3.
