The Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files are required to use PGP encryption and may be required by some connectors.

  1. Download the files and instructions for Java 7 or Java 8.

  2. Locate the jre\lib\security directory for the Java instance that the Atom is using.


    An example location is: C:\Program Files\Java\jre8\lib\security.


  3. Remove the following .jar files from this directory: local_policy.jar and US_export_policy.jar.

  4. Replace these two files with the .jar files included in the JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files download.

  5. Stop and restart the Atom.
