Exception com.ibm.websphere.ssl.SSLException: Cannot Get Security Object from WCCM During WebSphere Application Server Starting

A strange situation could occur during an instance of WebSphere Application Server starting:

Caused by: com.ibm.websphere.ssl.SSLException: Cannot get security object from WCCM.
at com.ibm.ws.ssl.config.SSLConfigManager.initializeServerSSL(SSLConfigManager.java:212)
at com.ibm.ws.ssl.core.SSLComponentImpl.initialize(SSLComponentImpl.java:145)
... 31 more

The reason is the corrupted ...\profiles\PROFILEDIR\config\cells\CELL\security.xml file. There are two ways to solve the problem, firstly, the file could be recovered from a backup copy, secondly, the same file could be copied from another profile in the cell, e.g.: ...\profiles\APPSRV_PROFILEDIR\config\cells\CELL\security.xml.
