JavaOne Track Highlights: Java and Security

By David Lopez

The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where to start looking? How to really know what JavaOne has to offer? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Each one tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the second post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what they have to offer. Last week, we looked at the Core Java Platform track . Today, let’s look at the Java and Security track and a few featured sessions. 

The Java and Security track focuses on discussing the best policies and practices for keeping Java Technologies secure. Java runs on billions of devices, including desktops and servers, as well as embedded and edge devices, making it an attractive target for attacks. To combat this, the Java and Security track will show you the security tools, coding techniques, and innovative products that can help you stay secure. These sessions will not only give you the tools to manage your security, but will also bring you up to date on what you need to be aware of for your daily work. 

Mario-Leander Reimer, Chief Technologist at QAware GmbH, will be hosting a session on “Secure Java EE Architecture and Programming 101.” His session seeks to demonstrate the potential vulnerabilities in poorly written code, including security vulnerabilities that can arise from only minor errors. Also on the agenda is a discussion of how to safely handle open source libraries. Learn rules and tools for staying secure. 

Also offered on the Java and Security track is “Code-Level Security Games and Puzzles in Java” by Brenton Phillips. Take a fresh look at security by studying and solving Java code-level vulnerability puzzles. You’ll work with the presenter and attendees to solve these puzzles in time. You’ll be able to see a security-focused static source code analyzer in use, and you can bring these puzzles back to your team as a fun way to sharpen your security skills. 

Stay on top of your security at JavaOne with these sessions and more! You can view all sessions on this track by going to the Content Catalog and filtering by the Java and Security Track. And be sure to register today while the Early Bird Discount is still in effect!
