public final class SerializablePermission extends BasicPermission
The target name is the name of the Serializable permission (see below).
The following table lists the standard
SerializablePermission target names,
and for each provides a description of what the permission allows
and a discussion of the risks of granting code the permission.
|Permission Target Name||What the Permission Allows||Risks of Allowing this Permission|
|enableSubclassImplementation||Subclass implementation of ObjectOutputStream or ObjectInputStream to override the default serialization or deserialization, respectively, of objects||Code can use this to serialize or deserialize classes in a purposefully malfeasant manner. For example, during serialization, malicious code can use this to purposefully store confidential private field data in a way easily accessible to attackers. Or, during deserialization it could, for example, deserialize a class with all its private fields zeroed out.|
|enableSubstitution||Substitution of one object for another during serialization or deserialization||This is dangerous because malicious code can replace the actual object with one which has incorrect or malignant data.|
|serialFilter||Setting a filter for ObjectInputStreams.||Code could remove a configured filter and remove protections already established.|
SerializablePermissionpublic SerializablePermission(String name)Creates a new SerializablePermission with the specified name. The name is the symbolic name of the SerializablePermission, such as "enableSubstitution", etc.
SerializablePermissionCreates a new SerializablePermission object with the specified name. The name is the symbolic name of the SerializablePermission, and the actions String is currently unused and should be null.
