  Access control in Java -- Permission check order

Previously we showed you how to turn on SecurityManager in Java. After SecurityManager is turned on, a series of permission checks will be applied on the code you are calling in your application to protect some resources against malicious access such as files, sockets etc. To perform these permission checks, a set of Permissions will be created and checked using the AccessController. The AccessController has three purposes : To decide whether an access to a critical system resource is to be all...

  Canonicalize XML in Java

XML canonicalization is often used when there is need to create digital signature to be sent to peers for verification. Since digital signature is created based on XML data, the XML data has to be canonicalized before its signature value can be calculated. Even an extra space may affect the signature value calculated, hence it must follow some rules to canonicalize the XML data so that it has a standard format. This is why W3C created specification Canonical XML Version 1.1. This specificat...

  NIO vs IO in Java

Java 1.4 provides a new API for handling IO -- NIO. This is a non-blocking and buffer oriented IO API. Below are main differences between the NIO and IO in Java. IO NIO Stream oriented Buffer oriented Blocking IO Non-blocking IO N/A Using selector Stream oriented vs Buffer oriented The main difference is that IO is stream oriented where the data is read byte by byte and the data will not be buffered normally.This means there is no pointer to move forward and backward in the stream. I...

  Using Java keytool programmatically

Java provides a command line tool to access and operate different keystore which store keys and certificates. This tool is named keytool and is located at \bin.  On command line, you can issue below command to generate a keystore named mytest.jks which contains a private key and certificate chain. keytool -genkeypair -alias mykey -keyalg RSA -sigalg SHA256withRSA -dname CN=Java -storetype JKS -keypass password -keystore mytest.jks -storepass password Sometimes, in testing purpose, w...

  Different types of keystore in Java -- Windows-MY

Windows-MY is a type of keystore on Windows which is managed by the Windows operating system. It stores the user keys and certificates which can be used to perform cryptographic operations such as signature verification, data encryption etc. Since it's a kind of native keystore, Java doesn't have a general API to access it. To help Java applications access the keys and certificates stored in Windows-MY keystore, Java provides a separate API -- SunMSCAPI. The SunMSCAPI provider is ...

  Using keytool to create certificate chain

JDK provides a command line tool -- keytool to handle key and certificate generation. This tool has a set of options which can be used to generate keys, create certificates, import keys, install certificate and export certificates etc. In this tutorial, we will show how to create certificate chain using keytool. If you want to understand how to create certificate chain programmably, please refer to Generate certificate in Java -- Certificate chain. To begin, we first generate a key pair whi...

  Java SynchronizedList and Iterator

While reading some material about concurrency, I come up with some writing about using SynchronizedList wrap about normal List to enable synchronization.   But one interesting thing is http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/Collections.html#synchronizedList%28java.util.List%29   It says     It is imperative that the user manually synchronize on the returned list when iterating over it:     1   List list = Collections.synchronizedList(new A...

  Singleton Design Pattern in Java

Singleton is frequently used in applications where resource may be expensive to create and no instance specific state needs to be maintained. For example, when creating database connection, a singleton may be needed. Today we will share the famous Singleton design pattern in Java. 1. Definition Singleton design pattern is a design pattern that restricts the instantiation of a class to one object. It is one of the most well-known design patterns. 2. Application Singleton ...
