JAVA_HOME environment variable should point to the JDK installation path.
Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files 8
Optional AES-128 is used by default for encrypt/decrypt operations, so JCE is not needed. If you want to use bigger key size, e.g. AES-256, then JCE is required for cryptographic operations. You can download it at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html. After downloading zip file follow installation instructions written in README.txt
