Loxone binding - Internal error (Enable Java cryptography unlimited strength (see binding doc).)


I am trying to get my loxone binding to work but keep getting the same error (see subject).

When looking at the binding doc i see this.

Encryption AES-256 JRE must have unrestricted security policy configured

Because i am using openhasbian i am connected with putty but i can not find a way to enable java in putty. I am a total noob in linux so i probalby missed the correct way to find it.

Thanks for your help

Java is running but this would imply the latest version is not installed. The unrestricted policy for encryption is now enabled by default in v9 and latest versions of 6 - 8

Java 9: Any official release!
Java 8u161 or later (Available now)
Java 7u171 or later (Only available through ‘My Oracle Support’)
Java 6u181 or later

I just used the automated install from openhasbian on my pi.

it says that there is the “Zulu Embedded OpenJDK Java 8” provided

OK … I assume

java -version

returns too low a version.

I think you need this download , there is a read me in the zip file.

I think I had to do this a while back but recently it has just worked
… or perhaps you can update your java version but the above is probably easier.

Thanks for the help.
This is my version

[06:49:47] openhabian@openHABianPi:~$ java -version
openjdk version “1.8.0_152”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu Embedded (build 1.8.0_152-b76)
OpenJDK Client VM (Zulu Embedded (build 25.152-b76, mixed mode, Evaluation)

I have downloaded it to my windows. I unforunate do not know a way to move it to the correct folder.

I have found that i have zulu java. So i tried following these steps =>

wget http://cdn.azul.com/zcek/bin/ZuluJCEPolicies.zip
unzip ZuluJCEPolicies.zip
cd ZuluJCEPolicies
cp *.jar /usr/lib/jvm/zulu-embedded-8-armhf/jre/lib/security

But it failed on the cp command.

[06:37:25] openhabian@openHABianPi:~$ unzip ZuluJCEPolicies.zip
Archive: ZuluJCEPolicies.zip
creating: ZuluJCEPolicies/
inflating: ZuluJCEPolicies/LICENSE
inflating: ZuluJCEPolicies/README.txt
inflating: ZuluJCEPolicies/DISCLAIMER
inflating: ZuluJCEPolicies/local_policy.jar
inflating: ZuluJCEPolicies/US_export_policy.jar
[06:37:34] openhabian@openHABianPi:~$ cd ZuluJCEPolicies
[06:37:41] openhabian@openHABianPi:~/ZuluJCEPolicies$ cp *.jar /usr/lib/jvm/zulu-embedded-8-armhf/jre/lib/security
cp: cannot create regular file ‘/usr/lib/jvm/zulu-embedded-8-armhf/jre/lib/security/local_policy.jar’: Permission denied
cp: cannot create regular file ‘/usr/lib/jvm/zulu-embedded-8-armhf/jre/lib/security/US_export_policy.jar’: Permission denied

I can not find the files that need to be overwritten in the folder
[06:40:51] openhabian@openHABianPi:/usr/lib/jvm/zulu-embedded-8-armhf/jre/lib/security$ ls
blacklisted.certs cacerts java.policy java.security policy

So i went deeper and found this
[06:57:21] openhabian@openHABianPi:/usr/lib/jvm/zulu-embedded-8-armhf/jre/lib/security/policy/unlimited$ ls
local_policy.jar US_export_policy.jar

That are the files but they are red. (they are also red in the limited folder) And i also can not do the cp command to that file.

I think i am doing something wrong here

I found this on the forum here =>

Please follow these instruction to update your java security policy files

I fixed by following instructions here
suhothayan.blogspot.com 33
How to install Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) unlimited strength jurisdiction…
How to over come “org.apache.xml.security.encryption.XMLEncryptionException: Illegal key size or default parameters” or "java.security.Inv…

overwrote files in both JRE and JDK security settings, restarted Java and opehab and now connected.

You will need to copy into $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/policy/unlimited
the files local_policy.jar and US_export_policy.jar

make sure you have read and excutable permission for all
i.e. use chmod a+rx local_policy.jar

I tried the last command
[06:48:18] openhabian@openHABianPi:/usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8-oracle-arm32-vfp-hflt/jre/lib/security$ chmod a+rx local_policy.jar
chmod: changing permissions of ‘local_policy.jar’: Operation not permitted

What did i do wrong?


I think you need to run cp and chmod commands as super user, try:
sudo cp …
sudo chmod …

Followed these instructions again but with the sudo in it

wget http://cdn.azul.com/zcek/bin/ZuluJCEPolicies.zip
unzip ZuluJCEPolicies.zip
cd ZuluJCEPolicies
sudo cp *.jar /usr/lib/jvm/zulu-embedded-8-armhf/jre/lib/security

And it works :smile: :smile: :smile:

Thanks all for the help
