Secure LDAP access fails if Alfresco is running on SAPJVM7. See attachment alfresco-ldapsync-exception.txt for the error stack.
SAPJVM7 is not a supported JDK but I opened this jira because the customer has a Premier contract.
The customer has a requirement to use SAP JVM unless there is a very good reason not to.
Currently Alfresco uses version 1.45 of Bouncy Castle Java cryptography APIs (webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib/bcprov-jdk15-1.45.jar). The customer requests Alfresco to evaluate the possibility of upgrading Bouncy Castle to a version later than 1.48, preferably to the most recent version, 1.52. The customer observes the issue with versions up to 1.47. They do not observe it with version 1.48 onwards.
