Class RMISecurityManager

  extended byjava.lang.SecurityManager
      extended byjava.rmi.RMISecurityManager

public class RMISecurityManager
extends SecurityManager

RMISecurityManager provides an example security manager for use by RMI applications that use downloaded code. RMI's class loader will not download any classes from remote locations if no security manager has been set. RMISecurityManager does not apply to applets, which run under the protection of their browser's security manager.

To use the RMISecurityManager in your application , add the following statement to your code (it needs to be executed before RMI can download code from remote hosts, so it most likely needs to appear in the main of your application):

 System.setSecurityManager(new RMISecurityManager());
