My Java application makes SSL connections to https://domains.live.com:443. When moving my app to Solaris 10 from Solaris 9 those SSL connection attempts caused an assertion error in a Solaris library:

Assertion failed: n->len <= 32, file /on10/build-nd/F10U10B17/usr/src/common/bignum/sun4v/montmul_vt.c, line 437

Turns out this wasn't a Java issue. I managed to solve it but the problem was obscure enough I thought I'd provide the answer here for Google, and the next person's, benefit.

From the core file, the fault lies here:

-----------------  lwp# 1 / thread# 1  --------------------
 ff2ce364 _lwp_kill (6, 0, ff3350c0, ff2ad954, ffffffff, 6) + 8

 f8c0c280 * sun/security/pkcs11/wrapper/PKCS11.C_Verify(J[B[B)V+0

Using "pldd" on the core file and then passing those through "/usr/ccs/bin/nm" the library file was determined to be:


This is indeed a problem in PKCS#11 softtoken library.

The problem was fixed under bug 15707130/7033814 (new/old number).

To get the problem fixed, you need to get a patch which fixes 15707130/7033814. Solaris 10u11 contains the fix already.

Another answer on serverfault (Strong Cryptography in Solaris Zone) suggested disabling 'softtoken_extra' as a solution to an unrelated problem. Disabling it also solved this issue for me:

cryptoadm disable \
    provider=/usr/lib/security/\$ISA/pkcs11_softtoken_extra.so \

Turning it back on reproduced the "assertion failed" error in every case
