Configure java Security Settings on Linux

By | 2014/02/11

If java is a requirement for your Linux workstation, consider further adjusting the java security settings for best security. Here’s how!


From the terminal, run the command jcontrol

$ jcontrol

This will launch an applet Java Control Panel. Here various settings in security can be made as well as an option to disable java in the browser.

As an example, here is what will happen when an unauthorized java applet attempts to load in the browser which is restricted:

    I think your manual needs to be updated, because apt recommends me to install julius, which is a “speech recognition engine”, according to synaptic :
    ~ $ jcontrol
    The program ‘jcontrol’ is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    sudo apt install julius
