    Default java.security.ProviderException: Could not derive key

    Hi,

    I am calling Soap Based Web Services from an application which is deployed in J Boss server. Part of my code snippet is given below.

    Socket socket = new Socket();
    SocketAddress sockaddr = new InetSocketAddress("xxxx", 8080);
    socket.connect(sockaddr, 10000);
    Proxy proxy = new Proxy(Proxy.Type.HTTP, new InetSocketAddress(socket.getInetAddress(), 8080));
    SOAPMessage soapMessage = createSOAPRequest(username, password, soapAction);
    ByteArrayOutputStream stream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
    soapMessage.writeTo(stream);
    String message = new String(stream.toByteArray(), "UTF-8");
    URL url = new URL(soapEndpointUrl);
    URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
    HttpURLConnection httpConn = (HttpURLConnection)connection;
    ByteArrayOutputStream bout = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
    byte[] buffer = new byte[message.length()];
    buffer = message.getBytes();
    bout.write(buffer);
    byte[] b = bout.toByteArray();
    httpConn.setRequestProperty("Content-Length", String.valueOf(b.length));
    httpConn.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "text/xml; charset=utf-8");
    httpConn.setRequestProperty("SOAPAction", soapAction);
    httpConn.setRequestMethod("GET");
    httpConn.setDoOutput(true);
    httpConn.setDoInput(true);
    OutputStream outputStream = httpConn.getOutputStream();
    outputStream.write(b);
    outputStream.close();

    If I run this code as a standalone Java Program out of J Boss, it's working fine. But the same code is integrated in the main application and deployed in J Boss server is throwing with the below Exception. I am using jdk 1.8 and imported the respective certificate in jre/lib/security.

    Caused by: java.security.InvalidAlgorithmParameterException: null
    Is there a null value being used there?

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am using the same build in both our local environment and UAT deployed J Boss. Local instance is working fine, but not UAT( which is firewalls enabled, but opened our urls and working my standalone java program here in UAT).

    What about the null referenced in the error messages? Where is that?
