IssueSSLSocket.getInetAddress() throws a NullPointerException in RSA BSAFE SSL-J
When creating a SSLSocket object using the RSA BSAFE SSL-J libraries, it is possible to retrieve the local IP for the Socket using the getInetAddress() method. This method is identical to the Socket object from which SSLSocket extends. However, in RSA BSAFE SSL-J 3.1, this method causes a NullPointerException to be thrown.
CauseThis issue is caused by the incorrect handling of non-blocking I/O
ResolutionA fix for this is available in the latest release of RSA BSAFE SSL-J.
