How do we make JDK 6 & 7 secure again?

JDK 6 & 7 has been functioning in maintenance mode since 2015, making them easy to exploit by utilizing the common vulnerabilities. The main issue is the lack of mandatory updates for cryptographic algorithms and disablement of some of them (including the outdated LTS) in software, which JDK 6 & 7 implementations interact with.

BellSoft ensures compatibility and the absence of regressions for Liberica JDK 6 & 7 updates, utilizing the test suites, which are available to BellSoft within the Java/OpenJDK ecosystem and through source code compatibility.

We will advise and help you to set up your runtime, making your work environment safer and allowing the implementation of secure automation solutions.

How you can keep your runtime stable with BellSoft’s support for enterprise customers:
