Windows 8 Sandboxing - some links

I've always been a big fan of Application sandboxing because I really believe that is one of the best way to enforce application security (and to create an ecosystem that rewards secure coding and secure applications). As you can see on Past research on Sandboxing and Code Access Security (CAS)  I have done quite a lot of thinking and research about it ... until I gave up because nobody really cared (and FullTrust .Net apps are still the norm).

Now Microsoft seems to be re-inventing the Sanboxing model (again) and giving it another go with Windows 8 RT (RT = RunTime).

I don't know a lot about how it all works, but here are some quick links about it that I found:

At quick glance I haven't see a lot about policy's or permission's management/visualisation/code-analysis (am I missing it?)
