Configuring a JVM for the Tomcat Server

To configure a JVM that will run the Tomcat server, perform the following steps. The location of the JVM is always determined by the administrator who configures the Tomcat server. Ensure that JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables are set.

To configure a JVM for the Tomcat server

  1. Install the cryptography library (cryptoj.jar) in the following location:
    • (Microsoft Windows) jdkDirectory\jre\lib\ext
    • (UNIX) jdkDirectory/jre/lib/ext
    BMC Atrium Single Sign-On uses RSA CryptoJ library (cryptoj.jar) for cryptographic functions. The RSA CryptoJ library can be acquired from Support or through another BMC Atrium Single Sign-On installation (using Tomcat/JVM).
  2. Perform the following modifications to the java.security file.
    Add a new line to the end of providers' definition list, and ensure that the provider is sequentially numbered.

    x specifies the order in which the security providers will be searched.

    The java.security file can be found at:
    • (Microsoft Windows) jdkDirectory\jre\lib\security
    • (UNIX) jdkDirectory/jre/lib/security


The RSA provider can be the last provider in the security providers list, except when BMC Atrium Single Sign-On is running in FIPS mode. For this configuration, the RSA provider must be first, with the remaining ones renumbered.


 For more information on configuring JVM for running the Tomcat server, see tomcat-6.0-doc and tomcat-7.0-doc.

    Might want to consider moving this page to the end of the regular installation instructions.  We did a normal install of SSO on linux and had to configure a JVM for Tomcat after the install in order to just be able to see the SSO Admin Console.

    Hi Nicholas,

    Sorry for the delayed response.

    I have added a note with reference to this topic at step 8 in the installation topic: Installing BMC Atrium Single Sign-On as a standalone. So, while installing BMC Atrium SSO on Linux servers, the user can go through this page.
