Java Platform Security and JAAS
The Java platform is built from the ground up with security in mind. This talk will introduce the security features of the J2SE, building quickly from the basic classes to realistic examples. You will learn the core APIs: SecurityManager, AccessController, Permissions and Policy JAAS Subjects, Principals, and LoginModules
You will then see how to invoke these APIs in real application scenarios. You will learn how to: • Partition your applications to safely invoke downloaded code • Read and write Java policy files • Extend the architecture with custom permissions
