Overview

org.bouncycastle:bcprov-jdk14 is a Java implementation of cryptographic algorithms.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cryptographic Issues as it does not validate a point is within the elliptic curve, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain private keys via a series of crafted elliptic curve Diffie Hellman (ECDH) key exchanges, aka an "invalid curve attack".
