Allow the same JCE jurisdiction policy files to work across JDK 6, 7, 8 families

    Details

      Description

      Currently, specific (per JDK family version) JCE jurisdiction policy jar files have to be downloaded in order for strong crypto to be available in the JDK.

      A supportability enhancement would be for the JDK to allow any version of the signed JCE policy files to work on any JDK family version. This is non-applicable to JDK 9 since the signing requirement was removed there.

          Given the new work undertaken via JDK-8157561, I think we cal close out this enhancement. End users will now be able to control limited/unlimited crypto via setting in java.security file. Downloading of policy files will no longer be necessary.
