Overcoming Java Vulnerabilities to Code Manipulation, Reverse Engineering and Theft

Because of its platform independence, the Java environment has become increasingly popular with developers. Yet Java’s open source code, publically available .class file format, and simple instruction set leave it open to prying eyes and hostile analysis. As organizations move their commercial applications to Java technologies, their critical intellectual property becomes vulnerable to reverse engineering, manipulation, and theft. Today, .class file encryption and obfuscation at the source code and byte code levels are the two primary measures developers use to thwart reverse engineering, yet vulnerabilities remain.

This white paper examines the nature of Java code vulnerabilities, the limitations of existing solutions, and how comprehensive Enveloping of the Java code – which combines both obfuscation and encryption – can be the ideal solution for protecting critical algorithms and other intellectual property.
