What are the differences and restrictions on - Untrusted classes and classes from untrusted vendors?
I see these terms at a lot of places and fail to understand the difference. Do they have special restrictions and capabilities?
Please help
Thanks
Vibha.

For the details, see Sun's Java tutorial Security in Java 2 SDK 1.2 I would give you a hot link but I downloaded the tutorial.
Basically, some code can be signed ( Jars, Applets ). A signature is a crytographic function. If you trust the owner of the signature then you can allow that code to run.
