exception when using thawte certificate

Apr 16, 2008 at 9:40 AM

im currently using version 1.0.1 because it was easier to setup (libs included and so on, why is that so ugly in 1.0.5?).

When running on tomcat 5.5 with ssl enabled, I get the following error on decrypting the saml token:

de.fraunhofer.fokus.jic.rp.SAMLTokenDecrypter.decryptIt - Illegal key size
Original Exception was Illegal key size

I'm currently using a thawte certificate in my keystore, here is the verbose list output:

the public key has a length of 1536 bits. Could this cause the problem?

Any ideas how to fix that?
