Default Which version of Bouncy Castle ?

Hello David,

with the latest version of Bouncy Castle

bcprov-jdk15on-149.jar

the code in your book does not work any more.

Can we get an earlier version of Bouncy Castle ?
Where ?

Thank you
Roberto

BC 1,45 would probably be your best bet.

This is available on the BC ftp site or in the maven repository. Please note the BC FTP site does not support passive ftp.

I would recommend giving the new APIs a go though - the flavour of them is similar to what is described in the book with a few name changes, however they are considerably more powerful and flexible.

If you also read:

http://www.bouncycastle.org/wiki/dis...Version+2+APIs
http://www.bouncycastle.org/wiki/dis...1.47+and+later

You should find you are okay.

Regards,

David
