JDK-8174143 :  
These packages have not been been officially deprecated, but they have been superseded by replacements for a long time:

- java.security.acl (superseded by java.security.Policy and related classes since 1.2)
- javax.security.cert (superseded by java.security.cert since 1.4)

They should be deprecated.  We should also deprecate the following methods in classes in javax.net.ssl which return javax.security.cert.X509Certificate types:

  - HandshakeCompletedEvent.getPeerCertificateChain
  - SSLSession.getPeerCertificateChain
