I was going through the security architecture with an aim to understand this from the Java perspective. What I cannot understand is that despite having the option of invoking the JCA/JCE implementation, what is the need to have the following optional layers of JAAS, JSSE, JGSS and CertPath. I have attached the diagram for your perusal. Thank you in advance for the assistance.
