[Dev] SDK vs multiuser and security features

We have recently seen a set of bugs raised due to side effect of the SDK 
mode of operation based on tizen 2 but used on Tizen 3.
I would like to invite the SDK architects to express their view on the 
transfer from Tizen 2 to 3 operation mode and how they propose to update 
the SDK.

I see few changes that will need to happen in order for the SDK to 
operate with Tizen 3 and we should address them soon rather than later. 
They might be more.

  - user App is going away. So no cross profile assumption on a default 
user ID can be made any more. The SDK will have to connect as a real 
valid user.
  - security and data privacy enforcement cannot be turned off and so 
faking user ID will not work.
  - Security features are linked to the Kernel which is 3.14, and so the 
SDK should be aligned. It should run with security "on".
  - sdb mode of operation is a security back door which needs to be 
fixed (or replaced)

It would be great to get a Wiki page created with your proposed model.
