During the last three decades, public academic research in cryptography has exploded.
While classical cryptography has been long used by ordinary people, computer
cryptography was the exclusive domain of the world’s militaries since the World War
II. Today, state-of the-art computer cryptography is practiced outside the secured
walls of the military agencies. The laypersons can now employ security practices that
can protect against the most powerful adversaries.
Considering these attack vulnerabilities and scenarios it is clear that the typical BCS is
not a desirable target. System resources are limited (storage space, CPU power, common
OS and software packages, etc.), and valuable information is limited to the BCS system
itself (configuration data, router tables) but no financial or personal information.

The purpose of this book is to answer those questions, from the point of view of people who want to use Java, but want to do so reliably, securely and safely. That makes this book different from much recent writing on Java, which focuses, perfectly legitimately, on how a Java system can be broken into and how to avoid those dangers. On the contrary, this book focuses on how Java can be made secure and how to exploit its strengths. The goal is to provide practical help to the various groups involved in making a Java-based application or Web site into an industrial-strength commercial proposit.
