Secure Delegation for Distributed Object Environments

SDM is a Secure Delegation Model for
Java-based distributed object environments. SDM extends current Java
security features to support secure remote method invocations that
may involve chains of delegated calls across distributed objects.
The framework supports a control API for application developers to
specify mechanisms and security policies surrounding simple or
cascaded delegation. Delegation may also be disabled and optionally
revoked. These policies may be controlled explicitly in application
code, or implicitly via administrative tools.
