Sun makes its own set of signing tools. The tools have evolved along with the JDK. We'll briefly cover both the JDK 1.1 tools and the Java 2 tools. The JDK ships with a command-line tool called javakey. Its job is to manage a database of entities (people, companies, etc.) and their public/private keys and certificates. It is also supposed to generate and verify signatures for archive files; however, verification is not implemented as of JDK 1.1.7. As 3 describes, an applet contained within a digitally signed JAR file is allowed to leave the bounds of the Java sandbox under certain circumstances. In JDK 1.1, if a JAR is signed and the user who has browsed to the Web site containing the applet has a policy stating that he or she trusts the person who signed the JAR, the applet can do anything at all that Java code is capable of. For example, it can read and write from the file system, start another process running on the computer (outside of the browser), open a network connection to an arbitrary machine, or myriad other tasks that applets are not normally allowed to do. In other words, trusted signed code under JDK 1.1 is as powerful as Java application code from the JDK 1.0.2 days. Remember, under JDK 1.1, we're operating under a black-and-white security model. To get going with code signing in JDK 1.1, there are few things to gather. On the development side, an applet that tries to perform actions that aren't normally allowed by the Java sandbox is needed (or at least one that can be augmented to attempt such an action). The most rudimentary operation that a signed applet can do that an unsigned applet can't do is read the user.name System property. An example applet follows:

A signed applet containing the preceding code (running in a browser of a user who trusts the entity that signed the applet) will be able retrieve the name of the user running the applet and display it in the status bar of the browser. Once the applet to be signed and its containing Web page have been created, the class files that contain the applet must be put into a JAR file. Even if the applet in question is only one class, it must be placed inside a JAR file. It is not possible to sign standalone class files. In order to sign Java code with javakey, a signing certificate needs to be created. Once this certificate is created, it can be used to sign the JAR file and distributed to users who wish to allow the signer's applet full access to their system.

A file called identitydb.obj stores all certificate information and lives in the directory specified by the Java System Property value user.home. For Unix Java users, this value evaluates to $HOME. For Win32 users, user.home can take a number of values. Different VMs assign the value of user.home either to the USERPROFILE directory, to the HOMEDRIVE\HOMEPATH directory, or when all else fails, to the value of the java.home System Property. To clear up any ambiguity, write and run a simple Java containing the line: System.out.println("user.home= " + System.getProperty("user.home")); Regardless of user.home, the location of identitydb.obj can be set explicitly by adding an identity.database entry to the java.security file that lives in the lib subdirectory of the java installation, wherever that may be on the system.

First, the signer's identity must be created in the database. To create an identity, signername, that will be able to sign objects, run the following command on the command line: javakey cs signername true Now that a signer has been created, that signer's public and private keys must be initialized. Keys can be between 512- and 1024-bits long. To initialize public and private keys for a signer, run the following command (where # is a number between 512 and 1024): javakey gk signername DSA # Higher numbers mean more security. We recommend always using 1024-bit keys. The parameter DSA signifies the algorithm used to generate the keys. The JDK only comes with the DSA algorithm by default. To verify that all has gone well so far, run: javakey ld This command will list all the information in the current identity database. The entry for signername should identify it as a trusted signer as well as noting that the public and private keys have been initialized. The next step generates a certificate that will be valid for signing JAR files. This is different from Netscape Object Signing in that there is no Certificate Authority involved. First, a directives file must be created. The directives file is a Java Properties file that provides values used during certificate generation. Here are the contents of an example directives file: issuer.name=signername subject.name=signername subject.real.name=Sol S. Signer subject.country=US subject.org=Signing Corp subject.org.unit=Development start.date=22 Jul 1998 end.date=16 Aug 1999 serial.number=41

To generate the certificate once the directives file exists, run: javakey gc directivesfile To verify that the certificate was generated properly, run:

javakey ld Look for the signername entry to have the subject.* information from the directives file listed. Everything is now finally set for signing. The command actually used to sign a JAR file also requires a directives file. This is a different directives file than the one used to generate the signing certificate. The first directives file used to generate the certificate will no longer be needed, unless a different certificate needs to be generated. The second kind of directives file is used whenever a JAR gets signed, and should be kept handy. An example directives file for signing a JAR looks like this: signer=signername # look at javakey ld for certificate numbers, should be 1 cert=1 # chain unsupported, must have as value=0 chain=0 # must be 8 characters or less and not conflict with any other # digital signatures that could be inserted into the JAR signature.file=anything out.file=Signed.jar

Once the signingdirective file has been created, run the command: javakey gs signingdirective UnsignedApplet.jar Running this command will generate Signed.jar, which will be a signed version of UnsignedApplet.jar. Putting Signed.jar in the ARCHIVE field of the APPLET tag in an HTML page will cause a Java-enabled browser to bring the JAR file over the network and execute the signed code contained within.

The Win32 specific version can be found at java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1/docs/tooldocs/win32/javakey.html.
