15.5 Conclusion

We have seen how the Java platform security architecture is based on the promises made by the Java virtual machine. Both simple and complex security policies can be implemented, depending on the degree of sophistication required and the time and effort the policy implementor wants to exert to ensure that the policy is consistent with good practice. It is critical that the implementor understand the guarantees made by the JVM to understand how the security measures might be circumvented.
