public final class AuthPermission
extends BasicPermission

This class is for authentication permissions. An AuthPermission contains a name (also referred to as a "target name") but no actions list; you either have the named permission or you don't.

The target name is the name of a security configuration parameter (see below). Currently the AuthPermission object is used to guard access to the Policy, Subject, LoginContext, and Configuration objects.

The possible target names for an Authentication Permission are:

	doAs -			allow the caller to invoke the
				Subject.doAs methods.

	doAsPrivileged -	allow the caller to invoke the
				Subject.doAsPrivileged methods.

	getSubject -		allow for the retrieval of the
				Subject(s) associated with the
				current Thread.

	getSubjectFromDomainCombiner -	allow for the retrieval of the
				Subject associated with the
				a SubjectDomainCombiner.

	setReadOnly -		allow the caller to set a Subject
				to be read-only.

	modifyPrincipals -	allow the caller to modify the Set
				of Principals associated with a
				Subject

	modifyPublicCredentials - allow the caller to modify the
				Set of public credentials
				associated with a Subject

	modifyPrivateCredentials - allow the caller to modify the
				Set of private credentials
				associated with a Subject

	refreshCredential -	allow code to invoke the refresh
				method on a credential which implements
				the Refreshable interface.

	destroyCredential -	allow code to invoke the destroy
				method on a credential object
				which implements the Destroyable
				interface.

	createLoginContext.{name} -  allow code to instantiate a
				LoginContext with the
				specified name.  name
				is used as the index into the login
				Configuration.  name
				can be wildcarded (set to '*') to allow
				for any name.

	getLoginConfiguration - allow for the retrieval of the system-wide
				login Configuration.

	setLoginConfiguration - allow for the setting of the system-wide
				login Configuration.

	refreshLoginConfiguration - allow for the refreshing of the system-wide
				login Configuration.
 

The following target name has been deprecated in favor of createLoginContext.{name}.

	createLoginContext -	allow code to instantiate a
				LoginContext.
 

javax.security.auth.Policy has been deprecated in favor of java.security.Policy. Therefore, the following target names have also been deprecated:

	getPolicy -		allow the caller to retrieve the system-wide
				Subject-based access control policy.

	setPolicy -		allow the caller to set the system-wide
				Subject-based access control policy.

	refreshPolicy -		allow the caller to refresh the system-wide
				Subject-based access control policy.
