The SecurityProxy is a JBoss proprietary feature that Geronimo  
doesn't support.  At the moment we don't have anything directly  
comparable implemented.

Starting with j2ee 1.4 the "official" way to implement security  
dependent on the ejb method calls is to do it in a JACC provider.  In  
a JACC provider you can use the ejb method call in the determination  
of whether to grant an ejb permission to a caller.  I suspect we  
could write a JACC provider that delegated to something like the  
JBoss SecurityProxy.  When considering this before I was thinking  
more in terms of a rule engine, but certainly just writing code is  
simpler :-)

Would you be interested in working on an implementation of this?  I'm  
interested but currently short of time, but I'd be happy to discuss  
how to do it with you.
