The login.configuration.provider property should be set to:


See 8016848 for more info.

After you make this change, java.security-aix will be identical to 
java.security-linux. It would be nice if you could just use the 
java.security-linux file, so that we would have one less file to modify 
when making platform-independent changes to the java.security file, but 
I understand that might be odd, since AIX is not linux.

Ideally, the content for the java.security-* files needs to be revamped 
so there is less duplication across the (now) 5 platform-specific files 
but we probably won't have time to get to this for JDK 8.
