Secure Application Development Models with Java.

Security vis-a-vis applications should work bothways. The application should be secure from threats of malicious programs from outside and at the same time the application itself should not cause damage to the hardware or software platform on the host computer. Applications should be able to prevent other applications from harming the client computer, especially programs such as Trojan horses and harmful programs that replicate, like computer viruses. Programs should be prevented from stealing /mining information on the host computer or the host computer's network.

Authentication of the originator of the program as well as the client of the program should be done invariably. Any Data that the program sends and receives over the network should be encrypted. Logging of all types of sensitive info should be insisted. The security specification of the application should be clearly defined and precise. The set of rules for the application should be verified and double checked for any loopholes. The ideal secure application model should consume only minimal system resources or CPU time or memory.

The above described attributes are or could be a part of a secure application model. It is interesting to note that the Java Platform gives priority to the security of sensitive info on the host computer. This belief stems from the fact that Java is capable of downloading application on client demand and just at the appropriate time. Java succeeds where other platforms fail by circumventing applications like viruses/Trojan horses and many more.

Java programs are considered safe because they cannot install, run, or propagate viruses and because the program itself cannot perform any action that is harmful to the user's computing environment. Apart from prevention of intrusive software, authentication or encryption etc are also built into the Java platform secure application model. Authentication, by definition, is the process by which users' access privileges are verified prior to the entry into protected area.

Authentication is available in two distinct types, Basic Authentication and Form-based Authentication. For secure access through encrypted SSL mode, the Java technologies deployed are the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE), the Java Secure Sockets Extension (JSSE) and the Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS). The JSSE API defines a set of classes that are used to perform SSL operations. The JSSE API also defines a set of classes that are used for keystore management.
