Java's most striking claim is that it provides a secure programming environment. However, despite lots of discussion, few people understand precisely what Java's claims mean and how it backs up those claims. Java Security is an in-depth exploration aimed at developers, network administrators, and anyone who needs to work with or understand Java's security mechanisms. It discusses in detail what security does and doesn't mean, what Java's default security policies are, and how to create and implement your own policies.In doing so, Java Security provides detailed coverage of security managers, class loaders, the access controller, and much of the package. It discusses message digests, certificates, and digital signatures, showing you how to use Java's facilities for signing classes or to implement your own signature facility. It shows you how to write a class loader that recognizes signed classes, verifies the signature, and cooperates with a security manager to grant additional privileges. It also discusses the problem of managing cryptographic keys and shows you how to implement your own key management systems.Java Security is an essential book for everyone using Java in real-world software. If you're deploying software written in Java, you need to know how to grant your classes the privileges they need, without granting privileges to untrusted classes. You need to know how to protect your systems against intrusion and corruption. Java provides the tools; this book shows you how to use them.

well written and explained down to a lot of detail but it's now 13 years old and it's hard to imagine that there has not been progress, or at least change, since then - would like to see some updates for cloud computing, big data, mobile devices, etc. - I don't think the effect of these will be large but it may be a good excuse for the authors to bring the book up to date

overall I checked out the Oracle site on this topic and, sure enough not many obvious changes, so the information in this book is still relevant

i bought it to be used in another country,and that boosted the technology they need, after reading it,very nice book.
Like the stimulating brew with which it shares its name, Java is a rich programming language that offers vast functionality. Many organizations have prohibited Java from their networks due to its supposed security risks. While Java does, of course, pose risks, such risks exist in every programming language. Anyone interested in taking an honest look at the risks of using Java to see whether it meets security needs should consider Java Security required reading.
Author Scott Oaks does an excellent job in showing the deep security functionality afforded by Java, taking the often abstract Java security concepts and explaining them in a clear and understandable style. As a senior software engineer with Sun Microsystems, Oaks has focused on Java for a number of years, and his expertise shows.
While directed at Java programmers, the book has significant value for any programmer or system administrator who needs to understand how Java security works. Those who may want to exploit Java's rich blend of features should gulp down this book.
take a step forward in your mundane java applet development by reading scott's book.
his tome is choked full of the kind of details and examples that java server gurus have known since jdk1.1.3. for example, he gives a very workable example of a READ/WRITE lock algorithm for threads competing for objects .. a simple but effective algorithm that competes well with a full blown queue manger.
need i say more? his book is one of the best on the market of experienced java coders.

The best book on Java security in the market . Assumes that the reader has a fair understanding of Java programming. Provides clear differences between Java 1.1 and Java 2 models . Exhaustive coverage of basic java principles like built in language security features and byte code verification. Good examples on class loaders . Covers various security managers ex AppletSecurity Manager , RMI Security manager . Provides solid foundation for features like code signing , digital signatures , encryption etc. In a nutshell , book for security enthsiasts.
One thing for sure that this book is well structured, chapters are properly segregated and closely linked to each other. It makes introduction to java security seems easy.

I used to find java security a bit complicated, got pieces of information from articles that I read, but I ended up having more questions.

Some of the APIs shown in the examples are deprecated for JDK 1.4, but you can easily replace them with the new classes.
This book was my first introduction to Java Security. After reading the book, I was able to gain exposure to many complex areas of the Java Security/JCA/JCE APIs to include Class loaders, Byte Code Verifiers, Policy Files, Security Manager, Access Controller, Permissions, Message Digests, Data Encryption, Key Agreements, Digital Signatures, and Digital Certificates. My only negative comment was that the author did not provide any examples using the Secure Sockets Library (SSL). I am currently working on implementing security related issues associated with B2B data exchange and felt that this book was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this book for any serious Java Developer.
