This online book has a chapter on Java Security; this chapter has a very nice explanation about the internals of java security, and it is very detailed. The Book: JAVA 2 Network Security covers the same topics, but since I have not read those chapter from the book I cannot compare them to this book.

Notes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is HTTPS ?
Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol
HTTPS (Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is a Web protocol developed by Netscape and built into its browser that encrypts and decrypts user page requests as well as the pages that are returned by the Web server. HTTPS is really just the use of Netscape's Secure Socket Layer (SSL) as a sublayer under its regular HTTP application layering. (HTTPS uses port 443 instead of HTTP port 80 in its interactions with the lower layer, TCP/IP.) SSL uses a 40-bit key size for the RC4 stream encryption algorithm, which is considered an adequate degree of encryption for commercial exchange.
Suppose you use a Netscape browser to visit a Web site such as NetPlaza (http://www.netplaza.com) and view their catalog. When you're ready to order, you will be given a Web page order form with a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that starts with https://. When you click "Send," to send the page back to the catalog retailer, your browser's HTTPS layer will encrypt it. The acknowledgement you receive from the server will also travel in encrypted form, arrive with an https:// URL, and be decrypted for you by your browser's HTTPS sublayer.
