Java HTTP client crashes on HTTPS connections

OS: CentOS 6.5
JAVA: 1.7.0_91

One use case in the project: due to the remote client server system upgrade, HTTPClient runs into such exception like

After Java runtime was upgrade to Java 8, the exception is gone. If we switch JDK/JRE to 1.7, the problem is still there. The reason can be traced back to /usr/lib64/ and nss version is not up to date. Using yum to update nss to the latest, the error is gone.

Why Java 8 works before nss update? The reason is JVM (8) wasn’t loading nss but rather using some internal SSL implementation to avoid such exception.
