I am pleased to announce that Ted Habeck and Jay Rosenthal have agreed to
push on the various security issues in Eclipse RCP within the Equinox
project.

Ted works in the Security group at IBM Research (
http://www.research.ibm.com/javasec).  He is mainly focussed on enabling
and configuring Java2 security for the Eclipse 3.x platform.  His intent is
to modify the Eclipse 3.1 code stream by adding doPrivileged() wrappers
where appropriate and providing call path analysis with required permission
reports for the balance of identified privileged operations.  I am very
pleased he will be able to apply his (and his group's) expertise to this
extremely important part of the overall security story.

Jay is a member of the Lotus Infrastructure Security team working on Lotus
Workplace (major Eclipse-based RCP app).  He has been focused mainly on
areas such as authentication, keystores/credentialstores, integration of
JSSE and the Apache HTTP clients as well as Eclipse/SWT UI to manage and
interact with these components.  His experience with these technologies in
a product setting will help add a robust and flexible authentication and
keystore/credentialstore model based on standards (JAAS, KeyStore, etc) to
the Eclipse RCP.

In the spirit of populating a new work area, I am calling on the Equinox
committers to vote in favour of granting commit rights to Ted and Jay.
