Please review this change to undo, or remove the forRemoval=true element 
from the Deprecated annotation of a number of security APIs. Since 
marking these APIs for removal in a future version of SE, it has since 
been reported that some external applications/code are still using these 
APIs, and there is concern that there may not be enough advance notice 
to adapt their code to transition away from these legacy APIs and/or 
replace them with newer APIs before they would be removed.

Thanks,
