Polaris is a Microsoft Windows system for running application software with limited authority. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_Polaris_%28computer_security%29 *** The code here is a proof of concept. It was never intended to be more than a research prototype built to show that we could run applications with reduced authority with only minimal impact on the user experience. The code has to be reviewed, tested and probably rewritten before being deployed to a wider user base. That being said, as many as 100 users have run a wide variety of applications under Polaris, and several have reported being saved from virus attacks. ***
