The Apache WSS4J© project provides a Java implementation of the primary security standards for Web Services, namely the OASIS Web Services Security (WS-Security) specifications from the OASIS Web Services Security TC. WSS4J provides an implementation of the following WS-Security standards:

This distribution includes cryptographic software. The country in which you currently reside may have restrictions on the import, possession, use, and/or re-export to another country, of encryption software. BEFORE using any encryption software, please check your country's laws, regulations and policies concerning the import, possession, or use, and re-export of encryption software, to see if this is permitted. See http://www.wassenaar.org/ for more information.
The U.S. Government Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), has classified this software as Export Commodity Control Number (ECCN) 5D002.C.1, which includes information security software using or performing cryptographic functions with asymmetric algorithms. The form and manner of this Apache Software Foundation distribution makes it eligible for export under the License Exception ENC Technology Software Unrestricted (TSU) exception (see the BIS Export Administration Regulations, Section 740.13) for both object code and source code.

The WSS4J unit tests use STRONG encryption. The default encryption algorithms included in a JRE is not adequate for these samples. The Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files available on Oracle's JDK download page must be installed for the tests to work. If you get errors about invalid key lengths, the Unlimited Strength files are not installed.
