Applet doesn't launch with SSL 2.0 enabled: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException

    Details

      Description

      The application is not launching with JRE 1.8U171, if SSL 2.0 is enabled.

      The application is launching fine in JRE 1.8U171, only when SSL 2.0 is disabled (in Java settings and browser settings), but we are getting Null pointer Exception if SSL 2.0 is enabled.

      JRE 1.8U171 -> SSL 2.0 -> Enabled ->Unable to launch application. `Null pointer Exception¿ is displayed.
      JRE 1.8U171 -> SSL 2.0 -> Disabled ->Application is launching fine.

      Further debugging with javax.net.debug=ssl shows these logs :
