Can you entrust your business to the Web? A no-hype guide to guarding against virtual pirates and ensuring Web security with JDK 1.2. Although Java is well on its way to becoming a universal feature of Web site programming and is managing electronic commerce transactions of all sizes, a steady stream of alarming breaches, holes, and gaping vulnerabilities in the language has been reported from the security community. The new JDK 1.2 security model promises a comprehensive defense strategy that will certify the integrity of all code prior to its execution. Now, in the tradition of the authors' groundbreaking Java Security, Securing Java thoroughly examines the capabilities and flaws of JDK 1.2 and provides vital, unprecedented coverage of ActiveX, Smart Card security, Web spoofing, and transitioning from TCB to 'complete untrust.' Featuring real-life code examples for safer programming practices, the book clearly guides readers through code-transition from JDK 1.12 to 1.2, covers effective ways to safeguard online transactions or debit card transactions, and provides an invaluable roster of the new breed of Web attacks. Companion Web site features software updates, developer tips and techniques, hacker and breaches news, security resources, and malicious applet alerts and cures.
