FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Red Hat Linux version 5(RHEL5)
A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
When we run our java based tool on RHEL5 is taking a long time to complete. After doing some investigation and debugging, found out that the SecureRandom methods (especially SecureRandom.nextBytes) were taking a long time(in the matter of seconds and even a minute at times) to complete.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
A stand-alone program which uses SecureRandom.nextBytes should be able to reproduce the problem onm RHEL5.
EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
The intended operation will take a while to complete. This performance is not acceptable. The performance should match with what we see on RHEL5.
The intended operation will take a while to complete.
This bug can be reproduced often.
