Jini Starter Kit 2.0 tightens Jini's security framework

Security for distributed systems based on mobile Java code is the theme of Sun Microsystems' new Jini Starter Kit, JSK 2.0. JSK 2.0 incorporates three new specifications: a new programming model and infrastructure for Jini services, a new implementation of Java RMI (Remote Method Invocation), and several changes to existing Jini tools and utilities.

The Jini security infrastructure has been in the works for almost two years. Starting in 2001, Sun's Jini team took the unusual step of releasing periodic snapshots of the early specifications and implementation to elicit feedback from the Jini community. Since then, the security project has also been a Jini community effort under the project name "Davis."
