Formalising the safety of Java, the Java Virtual Machine and Java Card. , University of Twente, TR-CTIT-01-07

We review the existing literature on Java safety, emphasizing formal approaches, and the impact of Java safety on small footprint devices such as smart cards. The conclusion is that while a lot of good work has been done, a more concerted effort is needed to build a coherent set of machine readable formal models of the whole of Java and its implementation. This is a formidable task but we believe it is essential to building trust in Java safety, and thence to achieve ITSEC level 6 or Common Criteria level 7 certification for Java programs.
