Which Cryptographic Provider Does OpenFire use?


I’ve noticed that OpenFire is distributed with a BouncyCastle jar.

Does OpenFire use BouncyCastle for cryptographic operations?

Or is it using the Java Cryptographic Extension?

BouncyCastle is not yet an approved FIPS 140-2 cryptographic module and would therefore make OpenFire unsuitable for environments with this requirement.

Can anyone provide clarification on which cryptographic provider is performing encryption within OpenFire?
