>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SIS-320
>             Project: Spatial Information Systems
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Metadata, Referencing, Storage, Utilities
>    Affects Versions: 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6
>            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux

> Wraps some code necessary to SIS working in {{AccessController.doPrivileged(...)}} blocks.
Examples:
> {code:java}
> String dir = AccessController.doPrivileged((PrivilegedAction<String>) () ->
{
>     return System.getenv("SIS_DATA");
> });
> {code}
> We should not wrap all security-sensitive request for information, but only those that
are needed for SIS working. Examples:
> * Environment variable value for {{SIS_DATA}}.
> * Property value for {{"java.naming.factory.initial"}}, {{"derby.system.home"}}.
> * Call to {{Field.setAccessible(true)}} in {{clone()}} methods for setting final fields.
> Information for which we do *not* request privileged actions at this time:
> * MBean registration.
> * Property value for {{"java.home"}}.
> * Call to {{Field.setAccessible(true)}} on deserialization for setting final transient
fields.
