Jazoon 2011, Day 1 – Java Security Trends: How to Leverage Growing Security Trends in Building Trust into Your Java Applications – James Gould and Srikanth Veeramachaneni

Java Security Trends: How to Leverage Growing Security Trends in Building Trust into Your Java Applications – James Gould and Srikanth Veeramachaneni

Nothing spectacular here for me. There was a nice diagram of an SSL handshake, some tips to debug SSL problems, code how to create keystores with the Java tools and how to convert a PEM key into something that Java’s keytool can use.

After that James gave an overview of DNSSEC and how to use it from Java (including code examples).

What I liked about the code examples is that they covered more than the trivial cases. For example, it showed how to specify per-key passwords (in addition to the usual per-keystore password).
