Update
As per release notes for IOPLEX Jespa 1.2.11 (https://ioplex.com/jespa_release.html) their distribution now includes two .jar files – one for Tomcat 9.x and one for Tomcat 10.x

It seems EasySSO classloader gets confused and loads the wrong .jar incompatible with the Tomcat version used by Atlassian applications – we are working on an urgent fix in 4.5.x branch to load the correct file.
