+<p>
+If you boot the Network Server without specifying a security manager,
+the Network Server will install a default Java security manager
+enforcing a Basic policy. This happens if you boot the Network Server
+as your VM's entry point, e.g.:
+</p>
+
+<codeblock>
+java org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl start ...
+</codeblock>
+
+<p>
+Note that the Network Server expects that you will run your
+client/server application with user authentication enabled. If you do
+not enable user authentication, then the Network Server will raise an
+error and exit. For details on how to enable user authentication,
+please see the section titled "Derby Security" in the Derby
+Developer's Guide.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Some of your application code may run as procedures and functions
+which you have declared using the CREATE PROCEDURE and CREATE FUNCTION
+statements. You will need to add privileged blocks to your declared procedures
+and functions if they perform sensitive operations such as file and
+network i/o,
+classloading, system property reading, etc..
+</p>
+
+<p>
+If for some reason you do not want to run your client/server
+application under a security manager, you may override the Network
+Server's impulse to install a default policy. For details on how to do
+this, please see
+<xref href="tadminnetservopen.dita"></xref>.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Note that the Network Server attempts to install a security manager
+only if you boot the server as the entry point of your VM. The Network
+Server will not attempt to install a security manager if you start the
+server from your application using the programmatic API
+described in the following section:
+<xref href="tadminconfig814963.dita"></xref>.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+You will find a copy of the Network Server's Basic policy in the Derby
+distribution at
+<i>demo/templates/server.policy</i>. Most likely, you will want to
+customize this policy. For example, probably you will want to restrict
+the server's liberal file i/o permissions which let the server
+backup/restore to/from any location in the local file system. For
+details on how to customize the default policy, please see
+<xref href="tadminnetservcustom.dita"></xref>.
+A copy of the Basic policy follows:
+</p>
+
+<codeblock>
+grant codeBase "${derby.install.url}derby.jar"
+{
+//
+// These permissions are needed for everyday, embedded Derby usage.

+<taskbody>
+<context>
+<p>
+The Network Server's Basic security policy is documented in a previous
+section of this manual:
+<xref href="tadminnetservbasic.dita"></xref>.
+Most likely, you will want to
+customize this policy and install your own security manager. For example, probably you will
want to restrict
+the server's liberal file i/o permissions which let the server
+backup/restore to/from any location in the local file system.
+Customizing the Basic policy is simple:
+</p>
+
+<ul>
+<li>The Basic policy lives in the Derby distribution at
+<i>demo/templates/server.policy</i>. Copy it from this location to
+your own file, say <i>myCustomized.policy</i>. All of the following
+edits take place in your custom file.</li>
+<li>Replace the <i>${derby.install.url}</i> variable with the location
+of the Derby jars in your local file system.</li>
+<li>Replace the <i>${derby.system.home}</i> variable with the location
+of your Derby system directory. Alternatively, rather than replacing
+this variable, you can simply set the value of the
+<i>derby.system.home</i> system property when you boot the server.</li>
+<li>Replace the <i>${derby.drda.host}</i> variable with the location
+of your Derby system directory. Alternatively, rather than replacing
+this variable, you can simply set the value of the
+<i>derby.drda.host</i> system property when you boot the server.</li>
+<li>Refine the file permissions needed by backup/restore,
+import/export, and the loading of application jars.</li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>
+A sample, customized policy file follows:
+</p>
+
+<codeblock>
+grant codeBase "file:/usr/local/share/sw/derby/lib/derby.jar"
+{
+//
+// These permissions are needed for everyday, embedded Derby usage.
+//
+  permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "createClassLoader";
+  permission java.util.PropertyPermission "derby.*", "read";
+  permission java.io.FilePermission "/usr/local/shoppingCartApp/databases","read";
+  permission java.io.FilePermission "/usr/local/shoppingCartApp/databases/-", "read,write,delete";
+
+//
+// This permission lets you backup and restore databases
+// to and from a selected branch of the local file system:
+//
+  permission java.io.FilePermission "/usr/local/shoppingCartApp/backups/-", "read,write,delete";
+//
+// This permission lets you import data from
+// a selected branch of the local file system:
+//
+  permission java.io.FilePermission "/usr/local/shoppingCartApp/imports/-", "read";
+//
+// This permission lets you export data to
+// a selected branch of the local file system:
+//
+  permission java.io.FilePermission "/usr/local/shoppingCartApp/exports/-", "write";
+//
+// This permission lets you load your databases with jar files of
+// application code
+//
+  permission java.io.FilePermission "/usr/local/shoppingCartApp/lib/*", "read";
+};
+
+grant codeBase "file:/usr/local/share/sw/derby/lib/derbynet.jar"
+{
+//
+// This permission lets the Network Server manage connections from clients.
+//
+  permission java.net.SocketPermission "buyCoolStuff.acme.com:*", "accept"; 
+};
+</codeblock>
+
+<p>
+After customizing the Basic policy, you may bring up the Network
+Server as follows:
+</p>
+
+<codeblock>
+java -Djava.security.manager -Djava.security.policy=/usr/local/shoppingCartApp/lib/myCustomized.policy
org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl start -h localhost
