New emerging developments to build robust software, such as generative programming, domain specific languages, meta-programming and so on are drastically modifying the way in which software is perceived and dealt with. Aspect programming is a new way of programming that allows the inclusion of crosscutting concerns into system design and implementation not captured when building software systems under object oriented models. This paper gives a quick overview of aspects and aspect oriented programming and gives an example of how this new technique could be used to address security concerns. Because aspects are a valuable tool in building robust, secure and efficient software, it is worth exploring this innovative technology.
