Program security is an old topic but always a current subject. Java was designed with security as one of its critical design goals. Since its original release, Java has gone through numerous iterations in its security architecture after being scrutinized over many years by security researchers, academics, security professionals, and having programs exercised in many environments. The result is the security features built into the current Java release J2SE 1.4. This talk will describe how the Java security architecture is implemented and what it takes to write a program using this architecture. The talk will expand on a security talk Gary gave at an IIT security conferenced sponsered by the IEEE and FBI last October.
