This question is better asked in osgi-dev. So I will address it over

[equinox-dev] OSGi and Security

I want to allow only specific bundles to offer particular services.  For 
example, suppose I have a service "com.acme.Foo" that I want to be sure is 
only available from one of three particular signed bundles.
How can I do this with the OSGi Security (either Conditional (chapter 9) 
or not (chapter 10))?
The trouble with this, of course, is that I want all other bundles to be 
allowed to REGISTER any other services without having any knowledge of 
what those services might be beforehand (and without having to force them 
to explicitly allow for any service they might want to offer in their 
security files).
So, the question is whether or not I can somehow set up a condition that 
allows me to specify that particular services can only come from 
particular bundles without having to then explicitly allow specific 
services from all other bundles.
Thanks in advance for your help!
