¿Es posible tener un firewall alrededor de las aplicaciones?

I want to host a game called Minecraft and let people upload their own Java JAR.
Now I want to restrict them to a certain port range.
As running all JVM's in virtual boxes is overkill we just stack them, but how do I prevent a user of using the default port?
Maybe something with javaagent in startup line?

EDIT:
Would this be a good sample code?

System.setSecurityManager(...);
// invoke the jar with a URLClassLoader

No entiendo el Cerrar votes as fuera de contexto - looks like a valid question to me with SecurityManager being one of the possible answers... -

@Voters: This is no off-topic. Programmatically restricting the app's port-trange is a perfectly on-topic question. -

I think you're actually looking for a sandbox and not a firewall. The java gerente de seguridad lets you do things like this through policies.

You should be able to modify the security policy for the JVM to restrict network access. Some info here: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/guide/security/permissions.html#SocketPermission

How could I implement that? Will I have to run a JVM that executes a JAR with those permissions? Some sample code would be great! - BronzeByte

@BronzeByte: Read the whole page (or the start of it, at least) - skaffman

@BronzeByte - you would put the uploaded jar files in a particular folder, and set permissions on that location as the 'codebase'. The policy file already exists in the JVM config somewhere - you just edit it. There is example config and info at the top of the page I linked. - sje397

@BronzeByte - no :) You don't need code. There is already an xml file containing the policy that is part of the JRE configuration, which you just need to edit. - sje397

@sje397 I can't seem to find the file path in any documentations :P - BronzeByte

And what about other security issues like file system access? Looks like you need a VM restricted like an Applet in a browser (Applet Security Managers).

JVM means Java Virtual Machine, now just need to make it not access the host system :) But I already have an application for not touching other files (not tested yet) and I chmod everything well :) - BronzeByte
