Keeping the JDK up to Date

Oracle recommends that the JDK is updated with each Critical Patch Update (CPU). In order to determine if a release is the latest, the Security Baseline page can be used to determine which is the latest version for each release family.

Critical patch updates, which contain security vulnerability fixes, are announced one year in advance on Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Bulletins. It is not recommended that this JDK (version 13.0.2) be used after the next critical patch update scheduled for April 14, 2020.

Other notes


New Checks on Trust Anchor Certificates

New checks have been added to ensure that trust anchors are CA certificates and contain proper extensions. Trust anchors are used to validate certificate chains used in TLS and signed code. Trust anchor certificates must include a Basic Constraints extension with the cA field set to true. Also, if they include a Key Usage extension, the keyCertSign bit must be set.

A new system property named has been introduced to restore the previous behavior, if necessary. If the property is set to the empty String or "true" (case-insensitive), trust anchor certificates can be used if they do not have proper CA extensions.

The default value of this property, if not set, is "false".

Note that the property does not apply to X.509 v1 certificates (since they don't support extensions).

This property is currently used by the JDK implementation. It is not guaranteed to be supported by other Java SE implementations.

Improve Registry Support

The java.rmi.Remote marker interface identifies interfaces containing methods that can be invoked remotely by using the following specification:

  • Methods declared in interfaces that directly or indirectly extend java.rmi.Remote can be invoked remotely
  • Methods declared in interfaces that do not extend Remote directly or indirectly cannot be invoked remotely

This affects remote objects in the java.rmi.registry.Registry and any other remote object.
