Presentation: Maximizing Security with JDK: Understanding Built-in Capabilities 

 In the ever-evolving field of software security, the Java Development Kit (JDK) offers many native features that are often overlooked. The presentation titled “Maximizing Security with JDK: Understanding Built-in Capabilities” delves deeply into the inherent security functionalities of the JDK. It highlights the cryptographic features such as hashing, encryption, and digital signatures, emphasizing the advantages of utilizing these internal capabilities rather than relying on external libraries. 

 A notable focus will be on the advancements in JDK 21, including the Key Encapsulation Mechanism (KEM) API, which complies with the NIST standards for Post-Quantum Cryptography. Through live coding examples, this presentation will demonstrate how utilizing JDK’s native security features can not only streamline the development process but also greatly enhance the security of applications.  

Our goal is to enable Java developers to fully utilize the JDK’s security tools for improved efficiency, performance, and superior security in their software projects.
