Some of our Java secure coding rules are applicable to developing Android applications. Our rules for Java are published in the book The CERT Oracle Secure Coding Standard for Java. The book was published in hard copy in September of 2011. Development of the standard continues on this wiki. Not all of the rules in the coding standard are applicable to the Android environment. Our analysis of Android applicability of the Java rules is here. The analysis is presented in a chart form, and Java rules that have been analyzed are hyperlinked to their full rule wiki page. For each Java rule found to require Android-specific implementation advice, that advice is provided in a column of the analysis chart. For each Java rule found to require Android-specific implementation advice, a new section, titled Android Implementation Details, was also added to that rule’s wiki page.
