Re: [equinox-dev] TrustEngine and other security services

The TrustEngine is largely used as an implementation detail behind the org.eclipse.osgi.signedcontent package.  OSGi services published with using the org.eclipse.osgi.service.security.TrustEngine interface are used to determine the authenticity of a certificate chain used to sign content (jars, bundles etc.).  I did not remember p2 using the TrustEngine directly, but perhaps it does for authenticating other types of certificates.

Sorry, other than the javadoc published for the packages there is not a lot of documentation here.

The p2 engine makes use of the TrustEngine, however I don't remember the details of how it works.
You may also want to poke around at other parts of p2 as I just happen to remember about this ref in the engine, but there may be others.
