In order to find a solution would the following be a solution for you: 

public final class VMSecureProperties
public String getProperty(String propName, String defaultValue)
  GetPropertyAction getProp = new GetPropertyAction(propName, 
    return (String)AccessController.doPrivileged(getProp);

This reduces out code duplication and should it make possible to do 
whatever you want inside your VM.

What do you think ?
