simulator says "In JDK 1.1, only signed
were trusted whereas in JDK 1.2, any
with the right security permissions can be trusted." Is this correct ? How can this be implemented without signing?

2 security model can grant permissions based on codebase (URL) as well. This is rarely used as it's rather unsafe: it could easily be defeated by a DNS poisoning attack.

It should be noted that an applet can not grant itself those permissions - they would need to be set up this way by a user on the client machine.
