The overall change is very welcome.

I'm not an expert in this area but I have looked through the changes.

In JceSecurity maybe verifyProviderJar could be renamed to 
verifyProvider or something better as it should not be limited to JAR 
files. I also wonder about the name URLVerifier. With the current 
implementation then JarVerifier is more obvious but of course that will 
change very soon when we have security providers linked into the image. 
Just mentioning it as renaming this to ProviderVerifier or something 
better might make it a bit clearer.
