    v12 v13  
    2222There are several possible reasons for the lack of ECDSA support:
    2323
    24 - Red Hat / Fedora : Not supported. Install the Bouncy Castle provider "bcprov" jar. Instructions below or at: http://forum.i2p/viewtopic.php?t=11580
     24- Red Hat / Fedora : May not be supported. Install the Bouncy Castle provider "bcprov" jar. Instructions below or at: http://forum.i2p/viewtopic.php?t=11580
    2525- Gentoo OSes: ECDSA is broken. It reports that ECDSA is supported but it doesn't actually work. See https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=528338 http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2497 http://zzz.i2p/topics/1931 . Reported workaround is using icedtea (not icedtea-bin) being emerged with USE="-sunec nss". I2P 0.9.23 will include better detection for broken Gentoo crypto.
    2626- Old version of I2P. ECDSA support was added in 0.9.12. We recommend that you upgrade to the current release.
    2727- Old version of Java. If you are running Java 6, try upgrading to Java 7.
     28- Beta version of Java. Ubuntu Xenial (16.04) openjdk-9-jre 9~b114-0ubuntu1 does not support ECDSA. Yakkety (16.10) has a newer version, untested. Install openjdk-8-jre and use "sudo update-alternatives --config java" to select it.
    2829- Lack of "unlimited strength policy files" in Java. Unlikely, but it might work. See http://zzz.i2p/topics/1682
    29 - Old or unusual OS without ECDSA support. See Red Hat above.
     30- Old or unusual OS without ECDSA support. See Red Hat or Debian above.
