Question:
After Upgrading to CA SSO 12.8, any custom code that uses cryptoj.jar  is no longer working, library is no longer found under \CA\siteminder\bin\thirdparty.
Why is this library missing in CA SSO 12.8?
Answer:
Starting with CA SSO 12.8, CA is no longer using BSafe libraries provided by RSA for encryption.
CA SSO 12.8 now uses Bouncy Castle libraries hence Cryptoj.jar is no longer used.
Recommendation is to use the new Bouncy Castle libraries fin custom codes with CA SSO 12.8 onward.
