    FULL PRODUCT VERSION : java version "1.8.0_60" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-b27) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.60-b23, mixed mode) ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION : Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600] EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION : NSS functions correctly, and can query the smartcard for its four certificates. NSS version 3.20.1 nss.properties file referenced in java.security: name = "NSS" nssLibraryDirectory = "c:\\ci-root\\pkcs11\\bin" nssSecmodDirectory = "c:\\ci-root\\pkcs11\\nssdb" A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM : When Mozilla NSS uses sqlite3 formatted databases the database names are different. Please see https://blogs.oracle.com/meena/entry/what_s_new_in_nss1 key3.db -> key4.db cert8.db -> cert9.db secmod.db -> pkcs11.txt The JVM has a requirement for a file named secmod.db which does not exist when NSS uses sqlite. STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM : c:\ci-root\pkcs11\bin\modutil -create -dbdir sql:c:\ci-root\pkcs11\nssdb c:\ci-root\pkcs11\bin\modutil -add "SmartCard" -nocertdb -force -libfile "acpkcs211.dll" -dbdir sql:c:\ci-root\pkcs11\nssdb keytool -keystore NONE -storetype PKCS11 -providername SunPKCS11-NSS -list -v EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR : EXPECTED - I would not expect to receive this error. ACTUAL - See error message below regarding secmod.db not being found by sun.security.pkcs11.Secmod.initialize ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR : keytool -keystore NONE -storetype PKCS11 -providername SunPKCS11-NSS -list -v keytool error: java.security.ProviderException: Could not initialize NSS java.security.ProviderException: Could not initialize NSS at sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11.<init>(SunPKCS11.java:212) at sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11.<init>(SunPKCS11.java:103) at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance(NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.java:62) at sun.reflect.DelegatingConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance(DelegatingConstructorAccessorImpl.java:45) at java.lang.reflect.Constructor.newInstance(Constructor.java:422) at sun.security.jca.ProviderConfig$2.run(ProviderConfig.java:224) at sun.security.jca.ProviderConfig$2.run(ProviderConfig.java:206) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at sun.security.jca.ProviderConfig.doLoadProvider(ProviderConfig.java:206) at sun.security.jca.ProviderConfig.getProvider(ProviderConfig.java:187) at sun.security.jca.ProviderList.getProvider(ProviderList.java:233) at sun.security.jca.ProviderList.getIndex(ProviderList.java:263) at sun.security.jca.ProviderList.getProviderConfig(ProviderList.java:247) at sun.security.jca.ProviderList.getProvider(ProviderList.java:253) at sun.security.jca.GetInstance.getService(GetInstance.java:81) at sun.security.jca.GetInstance.getInstance(GetInstance.java:206) at java.security.Security.getImpl(Security.java:698) at java.security.KeyStore.getInstance(KeyStore.java:896) at sun.security.tools.keytool.Main.doCommands(Main.java:768) at sun.security.tools.keytool.Main.run(Main.java:340) at sun.security.tools.keytool.Main.main(Main.java:333) Caused by: java.io.FileNotFoundException: c:\ci-root\pkcs11\nssdb\secmod.db at sun.security.pkcs11.Secmod.initialize(Secmod.java:205) at sun.security.pkcs11.SunPKCS11.<init>(SunPKCS11.java:207) ... 21 more REPRODUCIBILITY : This bug can be reproduced always.
