Let's Encrypt root missing from CACERTS file

Recommended Posts

Oracle 8u144's CACERTS file contains the ISRG Root X1 cert which is the root for Let's Encrypt, but the Jet jvm's CACERTS file does not.

Is there a specific reason for that? I had assumed that "Excelsior JET 15 supports Java SE 8 Update 144 (1.8.0_144) out-of-the-box." meant that it would be equivalent to the Oracle jvm, , but in this case it's not.

Problem is, Oracle does not provide the CACERTS file to its Java licensees. Each JVM vendor has to enter into certificate redistribution agreements with all CAs separately. Thanks for pointing our attention to the problem.
