The forthcoming Java Development Kit (JDK1.2) provides ne-grained access control via an easily configurable security policy. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation in JDK1.2 of the concept of protection domain, which is a cornerstone of the new security architecture. We present design rationales, implementation details, and performance data,
which demonstrate the utility and efficiency of the new security architecture.
