Accessing Private Fields Outside of Classes in Java

NCC Group’s Robert Seacord explores the underbelly of the Java language in his whitepaper on “Accessing Private Fields Outside of Classes in Java.” According to Robert, “The use of nested classes in Java programs weakens the accessibility guarantees of the language and allows private fields to be accessed from outside the class, potentially violating developers’ assumptions and affecting overall security.”

This topic, along with many other secure coding topics are covered in NCC Group’s Secure Coding in Java training course. The three-day instructor-led course provides developers with practical guidance for developing Java programs that are robust and secure and be delivered on site. Robert will also be delivering this training at AppSec Europe 2017 in Belfast, Ireland from Monday, May 8 through Wednesday, May 10.
