Java security technology includes a large set of APIs, tools, and implementations of commonly used security algorithms, mechanisms, and protocols. The Java security APIs include a wide range of areas such as cryptography, public key infrastructure, access control, secure communication and authentication. Java security technology provides you with a comprehensive security framework for writing applications, and also provides the user or administrator with a set of tools for secure applications management.
You can get the following benefits with this technology:
We use Java Cryptographic Extensions (JCE) in Jelastic Java Platform. It is a set of Java APIs which provides cryptographic services such as encryption, secret key generation, message authentication code and key agreement. The ciphers supported by JCE include symmetric, asymmetric, block and stream ciphers. JCE APIs are implemented by Cryptographic Service Providers. Each of them implements the Service Provider Interface which specifies the functionalities which need to be implemented by the service providers.
We saved the native architecture and technology for you and you don't need even to upload jar files or configure something to install JCE for your app, all the necessary libraries are included. Just come through the steps below.
