## [JDK-8244167](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8244167):
Removal of Comodo Root CA Certificate

The following expired Comodo root CA certificate was removed from the `cacerts` keystore: + alias name 'addtrustclass1ca [jdk]'

Distinguished Name: CN=AddTrust Class 1 CA Root, OU=AddTrust TTP Network, O=AddTrust AB, C=SE

## [JDK-8244166](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8244166):
Removal of DocuSign Root CA Certificate

The following expired DocuSign root CA certificate was removed from the `cacerts` keystore: + alias name 'keynectisrootca [jdk]'


## [JDK-8240191](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8240191):
Allow SunPKCS11 initialization with NSS when external FIPS modules are present in the Security Modules Database

The SunPKCS11 security provider can now be initialized with NSS when FIPS-enabled external modules are configured in the Security Modules Database (NSSDB). Prior to this change, the SunPKCS11 provider would throw a RuntimeException with the message: 'FIPS flag set for non-internal module' when such a library was configured for NSS in non-FIPS mode.

This change allows the JDK to work properly with recent NSS releases in GNU/Linux operating systems when the system-wide FIPS policy is turned on.

Further information can be found in [JDK-8238555](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8238555).

## [JDK-8245077](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8245077):
Default SSLEngine Should Create in Server Role

In JDK 11 and later, `javax.net.ssl.SSLEngine` by default used client mode when handshaking. As a result, the set of default enabled protocols may differ to what is expected. `SSLEngine` would usually be used in server mode. From this JDK release onwards, `SSLEngine` will default to server mode. The `javax.net.ssl.SSLEngine.setUseClientMode(boolean mode)` method may be used to configure the mode.

## [JDK-8242147](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8242147):
New System Properties to Configure the TLS Signature Schemes

Two new System Properties are added to customize the TLS signature schemes in JDK. `jdk.tls.client.SignatureSchemes` is added for TLS client side, and `jdk.tls.server.SignatureSchemes` is added for server side.

Each System Property contains a comma-separated list of supported signature scheme names specifying the signature schemes that could be used for the TLS connections.

The names are described in the 'Signature Schemes' section of the

*Java Security Standard Algorithm Names Specification*.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
