Do you think that PlatSec signing process is a nightmare?

Well, then let me share the following article with you about midlet signing. It describes how painful a Java midlet signing process can be. In addition to that, it also contains some basic information about how signing works (e.g. chain of certificates) and what it costs. Shocking experience. :-\

From signing and capabilities/permissions point of view I would say they're the same. You know, it's one thing that you've got to be familiar with a security system that sometimes simply doesn't work (unless you invest much-much money in it), the bigger problem that most developers suffer from is that you even have to pay for it. As security is our common concern wouldn't it make sense to introduce such a system in which nobody pays to nobody? You know, not only is the concern common, but the benefit would also be mutual. I know I'm so naive. :-\
