You must install Java on your server before installing PingFederate Bridge. PingFederate has been tested in the following Java environments:
  • Amazon Corretto 11
  • Amazon Corretto 8
  • OpenJDK 11
  • Oracle Java SE Development Kit 11 LTS
  • Oracle Java SE Runtime Environment (Server JRE) 8
Note: Ping Identity Java Support Policy applies. Refer to this article for more information.

Due to the import restrictions of some countries, Oracle Server JRE (Java SE Runtime Environment) 8 has built-in restrictions on available cryptographic strength (key size). To use larger key sizes, the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) "unlimited strength" jurisdiction policy must be enabled. For more information, see the Java 8 release notes from Oracle.

For Oracle Java SE Development Kit 11, the JCE jurisdiction policy defaults to unlimited strength. For more information, see the Oracle JDK Migration Guide.

  1. Download and install a Java runtime.
  2. Set the JAVA_HOME system environment variable to the Java installation directory.
  3. Modify the Path system environment variable to include the path to the Java bin directory.
