Hi Christoph,   I am okay  with your suggestion to   just  print  a  message  in  case that  an  older nss lib  < 3.15 is found ;  however   let's  see what others think .
(but for Solaris  we let the test pass when   noticing  old nss versions ,  so I thought  it might make some sense to behave on Linux in the same way )


Best regards, Matthias

Hi Matthias,

generally I agree that it's a good idea to have more diagnostic output in case of failures in this test.

But, given that there's an upgrade path even on our old Linux SLES 11.3 system to a newer libnss that has a fix for the bug that we observe, I suggest that the test should still fail with libnss 3.14. So I suggest you only add the line
System.out.println("Exception occured using " + p.getName() + " version " + ver);
and maybe a comment stating that libnss 3.14 on Linux isn't good for this test.

BTW, if you want to clean up the testcase a bit, you might remove line 36, import java.math.*; because it's not needed. Or replace all the imports with:

import java.security.GeneralSecurityException;
import java.security.Provider;
import java.util.Arrays;

import javax.crypto.Cipher;
import javax.crypto.SecretKey;
import javax.crypto.spec.GCMParameterSpec;
import javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec;

Thanks
Christoph

Hello,  please review  this small test related change .

We  noticed that  on our SLES (SuSE Linux) 11   test  machines, the test

sun/security/pkcs11/Cipher/TestKATForGCM.java

fails when older nss versions  are used on the system , especially  nss 3.14 .

The used package is named   mozilla-nss-3.14 .
Upgrading to newer versions (e.g. 3.20)   makes the test succeed , so it might be helpful
to add a check in the test like it is done already for old nss versions on Solaris.

(nss  3.15  contains a couple  of  AES cipher with GCM    related fixes, those might be the ones needed to run the test successfully ).
