What is the specific use of policy file.
As far as I understood I specify a policy file only for server operations such as
1. Starting a RMI regsitry
2. Specifying a RMI port.
3. Binding an object to the registry
4. Allow stubs to be downloaded on to client.
Is there a reason why a policy file should be distributed to a client? In which cases would a client use a plocy file?

You should probably tell us what assignment you are doing.
I did URLyBird, where the specs demanded that no security manager be used. So, security was pretty much ignored. It may be the same for you, unless your specs say otherwise. Remember that your assignment will also tell you that anything you do above-and-beyond the specs won't get you any extra points. So the question is: do you really need to do this at all?
