JCE stands for Java Cryptography Extension. It is, obviously, an extension released by sun that allows for the easy implementation of symmetric, asymmetric, block, and stream ciphers, as well as key generation, agreement, and the like. It is a fairly good and clean framework, however the out-of-the-box provider is kind of mediocre.

Until quite recently, the JCE was not exportable due to cryptography restrictions, however Sun managed to get through the US government's laborious review process, and now people from other nations can download the JCE 1.2.1 beta.
