Frequently Asked Questions About Sandboxing
In general, a sandbox is used to test suspicious programs that may contain viruses or other malware, without allowing the software to harm the host devices. Sandboxing is an important feature of the Java programming language and development environment, where the sandbox is a program area and set of rules that programmers need to use when creating Java code (called an applet) that is sent as part of a web page.
Sandboxes can be used to isolate code execution in almost any situation that software code is being executed. Some specific examples of using a sandbox to isolate code execution include:
- Web browsers: A trusted web browser can be run inside a sandbox. Then if a website exploits a vulnerability in that web browser, the damage is limited to the sandbox and minimized.
- Software protection: There are tools that enable users to run software they don't trust in sandboxes so that the software can't access their private data or harm their devices. Because a sandbox appears to be a complete system to the software, the software usually can't detect that it's constrained to a virtual environment.
