Thanks for the review! Comment added.

I was unable to find any working Windows NSS binaries that are less than 3 years old; apparently there are no official builds. I tried using Firefox's NSS, but for some reason Java couldn't load them.
I'll see if I can find a Linux distro with something more recent.
