Why do I get a system crash when calling some Crypto APIs?

Latest Updated:10/13/2016

Question:

Why does calling some Crypto API's cause a system crash?

Answer:

The Crypto API createKey(), encryptFinal() and addAdditionalAuthenticationData() interface functions currently do not have an underlying implementation and are thus assigned a null pointer.  This NULL pointer results in a system crash by any user application which invokes these functions.

This notice is an errata and supersedes the information in the SSP 1.1.1 User's Manual and Release Notes.

The planned resolution will be for these calls to return the NOT IMPLEMENTED error code in SSP 1.1.3. Currently scheduled for Feb 2017.
