I’m using fop-1.0 with JDK 1.6 and I’m looking at the documentation:


I find that I don’t have to set up Bouncy Castle to get “-u password” encryption to prompt for a password.  Can anyone else confirm, that with JDK 1.6, Bouncy Castle is not needed, or does FOP apply a very weak encryption unless Bouncy Castle or some other RC4 provider is used?


Kind Regards,
