Capabilities are multi-owner. A scoped keeper can create a capability via
which creates a new unique, unforgeable object-capability reference. The newly
created capability is automatically persisted; the calling module need not call
NewCapability will create the capability with the
calling module and name as a tuple to be treated the capabilities first owner.
Capabilities can be claimed by other modules which add them as owners.
allows a module to claim a capability key which it has received from another
module so that future
GetCapability calls will succeed.
be called if a module which receives a capability wishes to access it by name in
the future. Again, capabilities are multi-owner, so if multiple modules have a
single Capability reference, they will all own it. If a module receives a capability
from another module but does not call
ClaimCapability, it may use it in the executing
transaction but will not be able to access it afterwards.
AuthenticateCapability can be called by any module to check that a capability
does in fact correspond to a particular name (the name can be un-trusted user input)
with which the calling module previously associated it.
GetCapability allows a module to fetch a capability which it has previously
claimed by name. The module is not allowed to retrieve capabilities which it does
