I have an usecase in which we'd like to secure the behavior of some
particular bundles at runtime. We have an OSGi equinox application
that will install custom bundles during runtime and execute code
from those custom bundles. We'd like to restrict the execution of
those code to specified work directories for security reasons.
I have searched for a morning about a quickstart guide to enable
java.policy style permissions for installed bundles by the OSGi
equinox fwk. But I have not found any easy documentation besides
osgi specifications on Admin permission and conditional admin
services. Can someone point me to some documentation?
In short, I want to restrict runtime-installed bundles to have
limited IO privileges. Thanks.
Last year at EclipseCon, Karl Pauls and I did a workshop on secure
OSGi applications. Amongst other things we discussed how to run both
Equinox and Felix with security. There are slides in the PDF that
explain the command line options you need.
