wolfSSL JSSE Provider (and JNI wrapper)

This package allows Java developers to leverage the industry-leading wolfSSL SSL/TLS implementation for secure communication, providing both a Java JSSE Provider and JNI wrapper around the native wolfSSL library.  This interface gives Java applications access to all the benefits of using wolfSSL, including current SSL/TLS standards up to TLS 1.3 and DTLS 1.3, FIPS 140-3 support, performance optimizations, hardware cryptography support, and more!

wolfSSL is powered by the wolfCrypt cryptography library.  A version of the wolfCrypt cryptography library has been FIPS 140-3 validated (Certificate #4718) and FIPS 140-2 validated (Certificate #3389). For additional information, visit the wolfCrypt FIPS FAQ or contact

Platform and Language Support

Native wolfSSL is built for maximum portability, is generally very easy to compile on new platforms, and has already been ported to over 30 Operating Systems!  If your desired platform is not listed under the supported operating environments, please contact us, we can help out!

The native wolfSSL library is implemented the C programming language as a primary interface.  This Java wrapper provides an easy and secure way for applications to use wolfSSL, which has already been tested on a number of JDK's and Operating Systems.  If your JDK is not already supported, contact us for porting and verification services.

Hardware encryption and acceleration

wolfSSL also supports hardware cryptography and acceleration on several platforms. To see a list of supported platforms, please see our hardware cryptography support page.  Using wolfJSSE along with hardware accelerated cryptography can provide performance improvements and footprint size reductions.

Commercial Support

Support packages for wolfSSL are available on an annual basis directly from wolfSSL.  With four different package options, you can compare them side-by-side and choose the package that best fits your specific needs.  Please see our Support Packages page for more details or contact us with any questions.
