Keeping Your Java Applications Secure

Java security is an important topic for all businesses that use Java applications. Java Champion Simon Ritter takes a deep dive into the JDK and the potential shortcomings of not keeping your applications up to date, as well as why it’s essential to know the difference between critical patch updates (CPUs) and patch set updates (PSUs).

A little over a year ago, in April 2019, the way most Java users accessed updates for the JDK changed. The reason for this was a combination of changes made by Oracle to how the JDK is developed and the licensing terms of the Oracle JDK.

The Oracle JDK 11 and Oracle JDK 8 (from update 211) now use the Oracle Technology Network License Agreement. This limits free use to only four cases:

  1. Personal use (laptop or desktop for personal applications)
  2. Development use
  3. Oracle approved product use
  4. Oracle cloud infrastructure use

For all other cases, a Java SE subscription must be purchased from Oracle.

**SEE ALSO: **Type-safe Unit Expressions for Java (and you)

This has required users to make decisions about their JDK deployment strategy. One such approach is “well, it works fine on the JDK we have now; let’s just stick with that”.

There is an obvious flaw to this, which is the effect this decision will have on the security of applications.

Ever since people started developing software, other people have been trying to find ways to use it in ways not originally intended. This is often for malicious goals such as stealing credit card numbers or user’s identities. We use the term hacker to describe someone who is able to subvert computer security. There are a myriad of ways that hackers use to achieve their goals; from fooling people into revealing confidential information (phishing) to sophisticated manipulation of software through techniques like buffer overruns.

Unfortunately, the more complex a piece of software, the more likely there is to be a vulnerability that hackers can exploit. The JDK is a very complex piece of software and, as such, may contain vulnerabilities.

As vulnerabilities in software are discovered, they are normally recorded as a Common Vulnerability and Exposure (CVE). The National Cybersecurity FFRDC, operated by the Mitre Corporation, maintains the CVE database. Each CVE, identified by a unique number, has a textual description of the vulnerability.

How to Install OpenJDK 11 on CentOS 8

What is OpenJDK?

OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.

In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

Top 5 Java Web Application Technologies You Should Master in 2021

Web Development in Java

Java is a commonly used language for web development, especially on the server-side. Java web applications are distributed applications that run on the internet. Web development with Java allows us to create dynamic web pages where users can interact with the interface.

There are various ways through which you can create dynamic web pages in Java. The Java EE (Enterprise Edition) platform provides various Java technologies for web development to developers. Services like distributed computing, web services, etc. are provided by Java EE. Applications can be developed in Java without using any additional scripting language. Let us see how web applications are made via Java.
