Issue

 

- When starting an atom, you receive an error in the container logs  "javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Could not generate secret"

 

Cause

 

- There appears to be the lack of encryption related providers for certain JDK providers

 

Solution

 

- Verify you are using the JRE from Oracle.

-- To verify your JRE look under Atom Management -> Startup Properties -> Software properties -> Java Virtual Machine Name.

-- The value should be something like "Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM" for the 64 bit JVM.

-- If it states something like OpenJDK you should try switching to the JVM distributed and supported by Oracle.
