Subject [GitHub] [celix] rlenferink opened a new issue #58: Signed zip files

rlenferink opened a new issue #58: Signed zip files
URL: https://github.com/apache/celix/issues/58
 
 
   Background:
   Apache Celix (incubator) is an implementation of the OSGi specification adapted to C. It
will follow the API as close as possible, but since the OSGi specification is written primarily
for Java, there will be differences (Java is OO, C is procedural). An important aspect of
the implementation is interoperability between Java and C. This interoperability is achieved
by porting and implementing the Remote Services specification in Celix.
   
   Proposal:
   Implement the Digital Signed Jar Files part of the core OSGI (4.3) specification for Apache
Celix adapted to C.
   [Part of the core OSGi specification](http://www.osgi.org/Download/File?url=/download/r4v43/osgi.core-4.3.0.pdf)
describes how to handle signed jar files, so that authentication of the signer is possible
and ensure that the bundle has not been tampered.
   For Apache Celix we like to see a similar solution, but then adapted for C (So for example
Zips instead of Jars).
   
   Needed knowledge:
   C, Java & OSGi
