MAINTENANCE NOTICE:

For a few weeks beginning 23 October 2017, we will be performing occasional maintenance on this CERT Secure Coding wiki.  More information can be found here.

The Java rules and recommendations in this wiki are a work in progress and reflect the current thinking of the secure coding community. Because this is a development website, many pages are incomplete or contain errors. As rules and recommendations mature, they are published in report or book form as official releases. These releases are issued as dictated by the needs and interests of the secure software development community.

There are two books available that cover Java: one for rules and the other for guidelines.

The CERT Oracle Secure Coding Standard for Java provides rules for Java Platform Standard Edition 6 and Java SE 7.

 


Java Coding Guidelines: 75 Recommendations for Reliable and Secure Programs provides guidelines, recommendations, and examples to enable the creation of reliable, robust, fast, maintainable, and secure code.
