Fix Java error Unsigned application requesting unrestricted access to system

Tried to login to one of my server that requires Java and immediately got this error:

Unsigned application requesting unrestricted access to system. The following resource is signed with a weak signature algorithm MD5withRSA and is treated as unsigned

After some research on Google I found that the root cause was JAR files signed with MD5 algorithms. Apparently Java/Oracle decided to play smart suddenly and now they are treating JAR files signed with keySize less than <1024 as unsigned JARs. Read more here.

Fixing Unsigned application requesting

You can fix this by simply commening out jdk.jar.disabledAlgorithms in the file of lib/security/

  1. In my Windows it’s located at:
    C:Program Files (x86)
  2. In MacOS it’s located at
    /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/lib/security/
  3. In Linux? – readers please comment below

Fix Java error Unsigned application requesting unrestricted access to system - blackMORE Ops

I simply edited the file and added a hash # in front of the line below, save and run the JNLP File again and it worked.

# jdk.jar.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, MD5, RSA keySize < 1024

In some cases you may need to clear browser cache and Java Temporary files. Browser cache is normal, just delete everything including history form the beginning of time, all cookies, downloaded applications etc. For Java Temporary files do it from Control Panel > Java >

Now you can argue if this is a secured? Duh, no … but when you’re about to make a change and there no alternative, then this is a quick a dirty fix. An alternative might be changing it to <128 Keysize or whichever instead of commenting it out. Use your judgement i.e.

jdk.jar.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, MD5, RSA keySize < 128

England boss Southgate 'won't write off World Cup'

No limit on England expectations – Southgate
World Cup 2018 draw
Venue: State Kremlin Palace, Moscow Date: Friday, 1 December Time: from 15:00 GMT
Coverage: Watch live on BBC Two & the BBC Sport app from 15:00 GMT, live on BBC Radio 5 live Drive from 15:20 GMT and follow live text commentary from 13:00 GMT on the BBC Sport website.

England manager Gareth Southgate says his side “cannot go to a World Cup and not try to win it”.

The draw for next summer’s tournament in Russia takes place from 15:00 GMT on Friday, with the Three Lions in the second pot of seeded teams.

It will be Southgate’s first major finals in charge of the national team.

“We’ve got to attempt to win each game, be as prepared as we can be, and see how far we can go,” the 47-year-old told BBC Sport.

“Of course, a lot of these players are going to peak in two to four years’ time, but we can’t just write off the tournament. I don’t think anyone in England would accept that.

“We can’t go to a World Cup and not try to win it.”

England have not won a knockout game at a major tournament since the 2006 World Cup in Germany, when they were beaten in the quarter-finals by Portugal during Sven-Goran Eriksson’s reign.

At last year’s European Championship, England’s failure to make it out of the group stage cost Roy Hodgson his job as manager.

“Our last two tournaments have been a disappointment,” said Southgate, who took over following Sam Allardyce’s short-lived spell in charge last year.

“We’ve got to remember where we are starting from with this group of young players. But equally they’re fiercely ambitious, everything is ahead of them and it’s not for me to put a limit on their expectations.”

Who is Southgate desperate to avoid?

A tough scenario for England in Friday’s draw, which will be shown live across the BBC, would see them drawn in the same group as five-time winners Brazil, seven-time Africa Cup of Nations champions Egypt, and Serbia.

An easier draw, on paper, would see them in a group with Poland, Iran and Panama.

England know they cannot meet Spain in the group stage, but Southgate is not focusing on who he would like to avoid.

“It’s not that the draw is irrelevant but you can worry yourself silly thinking who you are going to play. We have got to be prepared to play everybody,” he said.

“In the past we have become unstuck against teams we’d be expected to beat perhaps, and at times we have played really well against teams that might be seeded higher than us.”

Travelling fans don’t need ‘special precautions’ for Russia 2018

How will England acclimatise in Russia?

Spread over 1,800 miles, 12 stadiums across Russia will host the 64 matches that comprise the 2018 World Cup.

Southgate confirmed England will be based in Repino, which is about 50km from St Petersburg, no matter what happens in Friday’s draw.

“The longest flight is three hours, we do that on a bus journey from St George’s Park for our games at Wembley, for us that’s neither here nor there,” said Southgate.

“Of course with any venue you never get absolutely everything you like but feel that’s the best option for us.”

Southgate earned 57 caps for his country between 1995 and 2004, and said he is able to draw on his experiences of playing at three major tournaments.

“Under both Glenn Hoddle and Kevin Keegan there was a relaxed environment,” said the former Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough defender.

“There is enough tension around tournaments anyway without the manager adding to that. It’s important for the players to feel relaxed on a day-to-day basis. You are trying to maintain some normality around the bubble that is the World Cup.

“That’s not easy, but I think we have a good culture within the team, a group of players who enjoy each others’ company.”
