> @bradfordwetmore The bug mentions only the Hmac*KeyGenerators. I thought about this too, but you mentioned in your initial triage comment on the bug that it should be treated as only relevant to the classes I modified. Thoughts?

What bug/Sean meant was that we wouldn't put in a check into java.security.* framework, but rather in sun.security.* implementation.  And that we don't need to put "SunJCE" in this particular throws message, as we'll know where it is from the stack trace.

My comment agrees that we have a problem in the JCE Hmac code, but there might be other locations where init's like this might allow for invalid 0 values.  It's just a general idea to check we didn't make the same issue elsewhere.
