Mmm... but I think we all agree that a security framework is needed. What will
it be, then?
In your mail from March 7th, you announced that the long term focus for the
MeeGo security would be end-user privacy. To me, that also means having the
means for a process which "owns" some of the user data to establish the identity
of another process which requests access to the said data. IMHO, this is
something that MSSF is doing very well in Harmattan, so I hope that this
possibility will also come to MeeGo.
Without this, you basically cannot give different access rights to applications
which are coming from a trusted origin (such as the device manufacturer or an
approved application store) and applications coming from the community.
