Could not start up the CDSA libraries

Hi All

I am using HmacSHA1 for Calculating RFC2104 compliant - base 64 encoded certificate for a given string and shared secret.
While starting the application sometimes I receive the error pasted below:

Caused by: java.lang.InternalError: Could not start up the CDSA libraries.

OS: Mac OS X Server 10.5.6

Java Details : Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_13-b05-237)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.5.0_13-119, mixed mode)

Any clues would be helpful.

Thanks,
Arvinder

Hi!
If you care to post some code, I could give it a try - just the part that is supposed to start up the library in question.
Best wishes!

Imports:
=======
import javax.crypto.Mac;
import javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec;

Code snippet
========
try {
SecretKeySpec signingKey = new SecretKeySpec(iSharedSecret.getBytes(), "HmacSHA1");
Mac mac = Mac.getInstance("HmacSHA1");
mac.init(signingKey);
byte[] rawHmac = mac.doFinal(iValue.getBytes());
byte[] aReturnBytes = org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64.encodeBase64(rawHmac);
iReturnValue = new String(aReturnBytes, "utf-8") ;
} catch (Exception anException) {
_logger.error("Exception Occured while generating HMAC" , anException);
throw new Exception("Failed to generate HMAC : " + anException.getMessage());
}

Hi!
Things work fine here with the following JVM:
java version "1.6.0_13"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_13-b03-206)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.3-b02-82, mixed mode)
Os: OS X 10.5.8

Have you tried to use a more recent JVM?
Best wishes!

Thanks. For me too it works 2 out of 3 the times. Could it be jar clash. (because both com.sun.crypto.provider.*; & com.apple.crypto.provider.* provide implementations of HmacSHA1)
I was not adding the any of the imports earlier (i.e. neither of com.apple.crypto.provider.*; or com.apple.crypto.provider.*) .
Haven't seen the issue since this change.
Will check for a day or 2 and update this forum on whethr it's fixed or not.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
