    Sharing secure folders

    Just a general wondering - if I install several programs within on SIS file, then why can't I define 1 private folder where all of them could read and write. Kind of making one common SID. During installation Symbian could then check that at least one installed programs has this SID defined also as UID - so I couldn't use someone else's UID.

    Now it's so stupid to figure out all kind of tricks to get around this restriction.

    Re: Sharing secure folders

    SID are unique and exclusive so I don't see where this would help.

    Its easy just to write a server to hand back file handles and do all the authentication at that point which makes it much safer and more flexible.

    Re: Sharing secure folders

    That's exactly what I ment. Why do I have to write servers if all I want is to have secure place where all my programs (installed together) could read (and write) common files. It should be possible to define what other SIDs I would trust and allow to access my private folder.

    Re: Sharing secure folders

    If all the apps need to be able to read and write common files, then you don't need a secure/private place by definition.

    If you need it for only those applications you write yourself, then the architecture today requires you to write one server that all your apps use.
