Jeremy Powell presents Java Security Workshop at the 2011 ACSAC

November 15, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Austin, TX atsec consultant, Jeremy Powell will present a one-day course on Java security titled, "Taking Advantage of Java Security Features" on the 5th of December, at the 2011 Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC) in Orlando, Florida.

The Java Virtual Machine and the Java standard libraries provide a wealth of security mechanisms that may be used to develop applications robust to a variety of attacks. Unfortunately, improperly deploying these mechanisms can lead to inefficient design, insecure code, and frustration to developers.

This course will provide the opportunity to learn, analyze, and discuss the major security features provided by the Java software platform. The objective is to enable software engineers with the knowledge and understanding to design and develop secure Java applications that are both effective and efficient.

ACSAC has a tradition of bringing together security professionals from academia, government, and industry who are interested in applied security. It is an internationally recognized forum where practitioners, researchers, and developers in the field of information system security meet to learn and exchange ideas and experiences. Started in 1984, the conference has grown over the years to achieve worldwide attendance and recognition for the high quality of its presentations, discussions, and interactions.
