Cause:
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermission modifyThread)
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermission modifyThread)
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermission modifyThread)

Resolution

Firstly, confirm 'protect' user has Read access to the IDM source directory.

If this seems correct, it may be a matter of a lost database connection. Try restarting all Vontu services on the Enforce server, then re-attempt indexing.
