|Applies To||RSA BSAFE SSL-J 3.1|
|Issue||SSLSocket.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.
|Cause||This issue is caused by the incorrect handling of non-blocking I/O|
|Resolution||A fix for this is available in the latest release of RSA BSAFE SSL-J.|
