        Description

        # Due to the import control restrictions of some countries, the default
        # JCE policy files allow for strong but "limited" cryptographic key
        # lengths to be used. If your country's cryptographic regulations allow,
        # the "unlimited" strength policy files can be used instead, which contain
        # no restrictions on cryptographic strengths.

        Since this is set by the configure" step, this section should be updated to describe the situation without naming the default, and let the user find the default value down further in the file.
