Issue/Introduction

When trying to import software through the software catalog a popup appears that says that the application has been blocked by Java Security. This problem has been seen when running the console in IE 9 or IE 10 with Java 8 Update 45.
  Application Blocked by Java Security

For security, applications must now meet the requirements for the High or Very High security settings, or be part of the Exception Site List, to be allowed to run.
More Information

Name: SMF Package Importer
Location: http://localhost
Reason: Your security settings have blocked an application signed with an expired or not-yet-valid certificate from running

Resolution

The NS\SMP server name needs to be added to the Java Exception Site list to bypass the security settings. To do this on the computer where the console is used go to Control Panel and open the Java Control Panel. Go to the Security tab and click Edit Site List.... In the Exception Site List window click Add, then type "http://" followed by the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the NS (If the FQDN doesn't work then it may be necessary to use only the hostname of the NS). Click OK and then click Continue, then click OK and OK. Close the browser and open the console in a new browser. Now when importing software in the software catalog a new message should popup with an option "I accept the risk and want to run this application" that should be enabled before clicking Run.
