+        We're currently focusing on bringing the documentation up-to-date. This includes
reworking the web site,

+        Work has begun in the Janus sandbox to rewrite the authorization stuff. 
+        Directions can be found on the <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/directory/JanusHome">Wiki</a>.

+        <p>
+            The authentication apis have been temporarly frozen. They look stable enough
for now. A username-password
+            implementation is available along with an XML configuration mechanism.
+        </p>
+      </subsection>
+
+      <subsection name="Authorization">
+        <p>
+            The whole authorization mechanism is being rewritten in Janus sandbox with a
rule-based approach.
+            We believe this will give us great flexibility to implement a broad range of
security policy requirements.

+
+      <subsection name="Accounting">
+        <p>
+        The accounting part is our lowest priority at the moment. We don't expect to tackle
this one until
+        authentication and authorization parts are usable.

+            <p>
+        Security refers to ways of protecting sensitive resources from unauthorized access.

+        This is usually done with a combination of authentication - to prove an individual's
identity -, 
+        and authorization - to grant or deny an operation on a resource.
+        Most security measures also involves some form of cryptography: secure digests to
preserve data integrity,
+        data encryption mechanisms to protect data access from individuals without proper
authorization 
+        and digital signatures to prove authenticity of some sort.
+            </p>
+
+            <subsection name="Authentication">
+                <p>
+        Authentication is the process of validating an individual's identity. It's about
finding out
+        if an individual is who he/she claims to be.
+
+        This is done by presenting some proof of identity, which usually can take the form
of username/password,
+        digital signature, etc. The idea is that each individual can be recognized by unique
information that
+        differentiates him or her from other individuals.
+                </p>

+
+            <subsection name="Authorization">
+                <p>
+        Authorization is about, once a user has been authenticated, determining if
+        hs/she is authorized to do something. A successful authorization results in the user
+        being granted the permission to perform an operation on a resource. A failed authorization
will
+        result in the denial of the same permission.
