So something related to your security settings..

This error occurs on the environment where custom password jar is used . and there is are testfixes available .Just like add JVM arguements

-Dcom.ibm.wsspi.security.crypto.customPasswordEncryptionClass=com.ibm.wsspi.security.crypto.CustomPasswordEncryptionImp -Dcom.ibm.wsspi.security.crypto.customPasswordEncryptionEnabled=true

Official IFIX is also available . Refer below link to download from IBM site .
