Course Description


This Java Development for Secure Systems course is designed to provide students with a broad range of challenges and techniques that make up “Java security.” Secure coding practice for Java incorporates techniques for Java SE and Java EE, and increasingly EE applications are using SE techniques such as policy files and JAAS authentication. This course spends some time on each platform, so that students will be exposed to SE basics such as access controller, permissions, and policies; and also traditional EE techniques such as web-security declarations and the EJB authorization model. Best-practice chapters wrap up coverage of each platform.

The course emphasizes hands-on exercise, and students will spend more than half of their classroom time solving specific security problems. Most labs are organized as scenarios in which a security breach of existing software is possible - students begin by hacking the system in some way. Then the work of the lab is to tighten up the software to eliminate the threat: set a secure policy, sign a file, clean up overexposed parts of an API, require user login, etc.


Upon completion of the Java Development for Secure Systems course, students will be able to:
  • Design and implement security policies for Java applications, servers, and components.
  • Manage keys and certificates for a Java application, and sign code sources as necessary.
  • Practice secure design and coding, and balance usability with security in UI and API.
  • Sign and verify application data and messages using the JCA, and encrypt/decrypt using the JCE.
  • Incorporate JAAS authentication into an application.
  • Implement a JAAS LoginModule to connect to your own application data.
  • Secure Java EE applications by URL and role, and integrate JAAS authentication.
  • Avoid common pitfalls of Java web applications, including SQL injection and cross-site-scripting attacks.
