Item description for Secure Internet Programming: Security Issues for Mobile and Distributed Objects (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Jan Vitek...
Large-scale open distributed systems provide an infrastructure for assembling global applications on the basis of software and hardware components originating from multiple sources. Open systems rely on publicly available standards to permit heterogeneous components to interact. The Internet is the archetype of a large-scale open distributed system; standards such as HTTP, HTML, and XML, together with the widespread adoption of the Java language, are the cornerstones of many distributed systems. This book surveys security in large-scale open distributed systems by presenting several classic papers and a variety of carefully reviewed contributions giving the results of new research and development. Part I provides background requirements and deals with fundamental issues in trust, programming, and mobile computations in large-scale open distributed systems. Part II contains descriptions of general concepts, and Part III presents papers detailing implementations of security concepts.

Advanced treatment of advanced topics Jun 2, 2002
This three section collection of papers is for advanced architects who are exploring contemporary security strategies. The collection is divided into foundation material, concepts and implementation. The book has a fourth section, but it's an appendix that lists the author bios.
The papers in this book are based on presentations given at two ECOOP'98 workshops: the Workshop on Distributed Object Security and the Workshop on Mobility: Secure Internet Mobile Computation. Unlike many books that are based on workshops and lecture notes, this one is more practical than academic. I like the fact that XML and Java are covered, and found the papers that deal with access controls filled with useful information. The paper by Blaze, Feigenbaum, Ioannidis, and Keromytis on the role of trust management in distributed systems, and Roth's paper on mutual protection of cooperating agents gave information that me and my team used to solve a design problem.
Like most collections of computer science lecture notes the writing is vastly different from more popular books, but the information is there if you're willing to dig through dry writing. Also, this book is not for programmers who either don't have a computer science degree or are not familiar with computer science and software engineering.
