public final class RuntimePermission extends BasicPermission
The target name is the name of the runtime permission (see below). The naming convention follows the hierarchical property naming convention. Also, an asterisk may appear at the end of the name, following a ".", or by itself, to signify a wildcard match. For example: "loadLibrary.*" or "*" is valid, "*loadLibrary" or "a*b" is not valid.
The following table lists all the possible RuntimePermission target names, and for each provides a description of what the permission allows and a discussion of the risks of granting code the permission.
|Permission Target Name||What the Permission Allows||Risks of Allowing this Permission|
|setSecurityManager||Setting of the security manager (possibly replacing an existing one)||The security manager is a class that allows applications to implement a security policy. Granting the setSecurityManager permission would allow code to change which security manager is used by installing a different, possibly less restrictive security manager, thereby bypassing checks that would have been enforced by the original security manager.|
|createSecurityManager||Creation of a new security manager||This gives code access to protected, sensitive methods that may disclose information about other classes or the execution stack.|
