J2EE Security for Architects

Risk Analysis

To my mind, Risk Analysis is a general exercise that will apply equaly to all apps irrespective of the language used to implement the app. So would say that this belongs in the Guide rather than the Java project, unless you have some ideas on how to make this Java specific? --Stephendv 08:04, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

I agree -- suggest deleting this section Jeff Williams 09:04, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

Agreed - Rohyt

Mapping Regulatory requirements to technical requirements

Same as above. --Stephendv 08:04, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

I agree -- suggest deleting this section Jeff Williams 09:04, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

Agreed - Rohyt

Design considerations

This is quite general. Shall we narrow it down to the architectural issues that should be considered for each of the popular architectures such as:

  • Architectural considerations
    • EJB Middle tier
    • Web Services Middle tier
    • Spring Middle tier

--Stephendv 08:04, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

Frameworks you should be aware of (e.g. struts, stinger, etc.)

There are many frameworks out there, so I'd suggest we keep this down to frameworks that specifically offer security functionality such as:

  • Acegi
  • Commons validator
  • jGuard
  • Stinger seems to be parked for a while now, is this correct Jeff?
    • Stinger is
    • CVS HEAD is in a functional state; needs work on docs and new features Roman 00:15, 13 June 2006 (EDT)

Most web tier frameworks will prevent XSS attacks, so listing them all in this section is a bit verbose, would prefer to see them listed in the XSS section. --Stephendv 08:04, 12 June 2006 (EDT)


I think Struts should be covered too given the extensive input validation functionality it supports - Rohyt

J2EE Security for Developers

Java Security Basics

  • Class Loading
  • Bytecode verifier
  • The Security Manager and security.policy file

I suggest we do something short here for web developers, and wait on client side apps for now Jeff Williams 09:04, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

I agree --Stephendv 09:48, 12 June 2006 (EDT)

I agree - the initial focus should be web app developers. We can then address security issues pertinent to thick-client apps - Rohyt

J2EE Security For Deployers

Securing Popular J2EE Servers

  • Securing Tomcat
  • Securing JBoss
  • Securing WebLogic
  • Securing WebSphere
  • Securing x...

Would be nice to include an example secure by default configuration file for each server that has additional comments in it which expands on the security repurcussions of the various sections.

Defining a Java Security Policy

  • Jeff's tool? --Stephendv 08:37, 12 June 2006 (EDT)
  • jChains (www.jchains.org)

Protecting Binaries

  • Bytecode obfuscation
  • Convert bytecode to native machine code
  • jarsigner
