This option enables or disables OpenSSL native cryptographic support for the MD5, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 digest algorithms.


Setting value Default
-Djdk.nativeDigest true yes
-Djdk.nativeDigest false


To turn off all the algorithms, see the -Djdk.nativeCrypto system property command-line option.

Note: The MD5 digest algorithm is not supported for OpenSSL on AIX®. The Java implementation is always used for the MD5 digest algorithm on AIX.
