Abstract

The byte-code verifier is advertised as a key component of the security and safety strategy for the Java language, making it possible to use and exchange Java programs without fearing too much damage due to erroneous programs or malignant program providers. As Java is likely to become one of the languages used to embed programs in all kinds of appliances or computer-based applications, it becomes important to verify that the claim of safety is justified.
