Abstract

This chapter discusses two critical security features in OS X: application signing and the App Sandbox. These technologies were both introduced with Mac OS 10.5 and provide facilities that improve the overall security of the platform. Incidentally, both technologies are also heavily leveraged by iOS, the underlying operating system on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and AppleTV.
