Right now, we do not support TLS, and it is correct that SSL is required. We've filed DBX-332 to track this enhancement request and have linked to this question.

What version of dbx are you running? The later versions require usessl=true be set.

At the DB Connect source code level it seems the developer is attempting to create an SSL connection as.

SSLContext sc = SSLContext.getInstance("SSL");

My org doesn’t allow SSL so the communication fails between the java bridge server and client. It has to use TLS for it to work on our systems.

SSLContext sc = SSLContext.getInstance("TLS");
