The JVM on the client knows nothing of the one on the server, so you'll have
to pass those properties to the applet either as system properties using the
java_arguments parameter or as applet parameters (if you don't need them to
be system properties on the client).

Signing the applet (including the Pivot jars) would definitely work.  There
may be a less invasive way to fix it as well (I want to say I've heard
something about granting access to specific system properties in 6u10), but
I'm not sure.

If startup properties to your application would work vs. system properties,
then you wouldn't need to worry about permissions.
