Document for collecting Security requirements

Requirements

  • Support plugging JCA/JCE classes into the platform dynamically via services or extensions
  • Use Java-standard APIs like KeyStore, CertStore, etc. where appropriate for Key management
  • Support login to the platform
  • Run with a fully-integrated SecurityManager
  • Define domain specific Permissions for eclipse concepts (e.g. ViewPermission, ActionPermission) and make
  • Find a way to run non trusted plug-ins in a sandbox
  • Make EMF generated code secure: define model specific permissions and use them in the generated code
  • Platform UI enhancements
    • Plug KeyStore instances into the platform for use during code signing (and someday other - e.g.: mail signing) operations
    • Prompt for passwords for KeyStores and their aliases when used
    • User interface for managing KeyStores for code signing trust (cacerts, user's .keystore, etc)
    • User interface for managing permissions granted to bundle signers
  • JDT UI enhancements
    • Show the signer information/configuration of classes in jars and projects
    • Configure a project to be signed after compile using a system KeyStore or a project specific KeyStore
    • Manually cause signing to occur from project context menu
    • Simple support for launching with a security manager (ie: a checkbox in the launch config)
    • Ability to run a workspace project as if it was a signed and packaged jar
    • Handle keystore file types (*.keystore,*.jks,*.jceks,*.p12 etc) in project filesystems
