I was tasked with finding the security features of JRE 1.8 and compare it to JRE 1.7 update 51. When I try to look for new security though, it only shows ">JDK< Security Enhancements" (ie. Not ">JRE< Security Enhancements") for 1.8. Is that what I'm looking for? If not, is it ever documented?
So, I'm just looking for the Java Runtime Environment, since I'm not developing any programs in Java. So, are those JDK Security Enhancements the "security features of JRE 8" that I am looking for?
I ask here because "security features" felt so broad that I did not know what to start looking for. I don't even know what to search in google. I'm not that knowledgeable on Java at all. Your help is appreciated.
