Subject Re: ACL (access control list) tutorial or example
Date Tue, 08 May 2007 15:11:19 GMT
Good Morning Dave...

I would start by referencing this link
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/cgi-howto.html

either
setup security in %JAVA_HOME%/lib/security/java.policy and start java with 
security manager enabled e.g.
JAVA -Djava.security.policy=java.policy %CATALINA_HOME%\bin\bootstrap.jar

OR
read everything you can on configuring %CATALINA_HOME%/conf/catalina.policy
and configure the necessary options in catalina.policy *this link should get 
you started*
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-4.1-doc/security-manager-howto.html

HTH/
Martin
