"This second edition is mandatory up-to-date reading for every user and developer of Webware. Its eye-opening analysis of the security risks provides timely realism amidst an otherwise mad dash to universal Net use."

"This book cuts through the hype and clears up the confusion surrounding Java and security."
Author of Inside the Java Virtual Machine
"McGraw and Felten give Java's designers their due for trying to create a secure Internet programming language, but they cut through a lot of the hype--both positive and negative--about how secure it really is. Since Java pervades many aspects of Internet commerce, knowing the true risks is important for anyone who plans to do business on the Net."
Senior Editor, Internet World
"Security is a part of modern networking that often gets ignored until it's too late... Gary and Ed's book is a clear explanation of the situation, chock full of details and useful advice. A must-read book for anyone who is considering mobile code as part of their mission-critical infrastructure."
