>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-2455
>             Project: Karaf
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: karaf-osgi
>            Reporter: David Bosschaert
>            Assignee: Jean-Baptiste Onofré
>             Fix For: 3.0.0
> Add a mechanism to Karaf by which OSGi services can be secured.
> It should check the (JAAS-provided) roles of the user associated with the current thread
with the roles required to invoke the OSGi service. 
> The service-roles should be configurable and should not require modification of the service
code, although there might be a mechanism by which services provide information about the
default roles required for invocation themselves (e.g. as an annotation). 
> The current user's roles are obtained using standard JSE code that obtains the current
Subject from the AccessControlContext as in:
> {code}  AccessControlContext acc = AccessController.getContext();
>   Subject subject = Subject.getSubject(acc);
> At this point you can get all the Principals from the subject, e.g. all the
> roles:
>   Set<RolePrincipal> roles = subject.getPrincipals(RolePrincipal.class);
> {code}
> If the user doesn't have the required roles, the service invocation should not proceed
and throw a SecurityException instead.
