Abstract : EUROMED, a DG III project, aims to create the foundations of telemedical information society. EUROMED-ETS, an INFOSEC project, provided secure communications among EUROMED participants by establishing Trusted Third Party Services (TTPs) over the Web. Java technology plays an important role in EUROMED. In this paper, the threats that Java technology introduces to EUROMED are explored and security countermeasures are proposed, utilizing the TTP infrastructure.
