Class ProtectionDomain

java.lang.Object
  |
  +--java.security.ProtectionDomain

public class ProtectionDomain
extends Object

This ProtectionDomain class encapulates the characteristics of a domain, which encloses a set of classes whose instances are granted the same set of permissions.

In addition to a set of permissions, a domain is comprised of a CodeSource, which is a set of PublicKeys together with a codebase (in the form of a URL). Thus, classes signed by the same keys and from the same URL are placed in the same domain. Classes that have the same permissions but are from different code sources belong to different domains.

A class belongs to one and only one ProtectionDomain.
