11.3.5 Applet Deletion Manager Privileges

Although an Applet Deletion Manager may be implemented as an applet, an Applet Deletion Manager typically requires access to features that are not available to other applets. For example, depending on the Java Card RE implementer's implementation, the Applet Deletion Manager needs to do the following:

  • Read and write directly to memory, bypassing the object system and/or standard security.
  • Access objects owned by other applets or by the Java Card RE.
  • Invoke non-entry point methods of the Java Card RE.

Again, it is up to each Java Card RE implementer to determine the Applet Deletion Manager implementation and supply such features in their Java Card RE implementations as necessary to support their Applet Deletion Manager. Java Card RE implementers are also responsible for the security of such features, so that they are not available to normal applets.
