 <p>This work was contributed by Yudhi Karunia Surtan of PT. Global Digital Niaga (blibli.com).
 Thanks to him and his team for their efforts in helping others use Fortress.</p>

+<p>This document contains an overview for combining a CAS-based SSO module with fortress-based
authorization, using a declarative URL filtering mechanism. </p>

-<p>I created this solution because at the time I was looking an IAM and SSO solution,
and there were no open source solution to provide everything that I required.</p>
-<p>Basically, the idea is, I wanted to have a framework where the developer doesn't
need to programmatically make authorization calls, use annotation or any other kind of “if
condition” statements, in their code. With this solution, I'm can have a declarative
mechanism capable of dynamic authorization decisions, even if the user hasn't been logged
in or has the the proper role activated.  This is because the authorization has been centralized
at the server and that server can activate and deactivate user roles that are needed to access
the runtime environment.</p>
-<p>I searched across all available open source solutions and finally decided to use
Apereo CAS and Apache Fortress as the combined solution. Apereo CAS does the authentication
and Apache Fortress will handle the authorization.</p>
+<p>I created this solution a few years ago because at the time I was looking for an
IAM and SSO solution, and there were no open source solutions that provided everything that

+<p>Basically, the idea was, I needed a framework where the developer didn't have to
programmatically add authorization calls to their code, or use annotations, or any other kind
of “if condition” statement. With this solution, I can have a declarative mechanism
that is still capable of making advanced dynamic authorization decisions, even if the user
hasn't been logged in before or has any of the proper roles activated to their session.  I
can do this because I control the authorization and it has been centralized in the server,
and that server can activate whatever user roles needed to to allow access to the runtime
environment.</p>
+<p>I searched across all available open source solutions and finally decided to combine
Apereo CAS and Apache Fortress into a single solution. Apereo CAS does the authentication
and Apache Fortress will handle authorization.</p>
 <p>Apereo CAS is very good way to handle the Single Sign-On and Single Sign-Out problems,
on the other hand it lacks authorization capaibilities because there aren't standardized solutions
for authorization in that space yet. Apache Fortress is good at authorization because it uses
standard RBAC. However, Apache Fortress doesn't have an SSO solution yet. That is why I think
both should be combined because they complement each other.  Unfortunately, there aren't yet
good documentation resources available to combine these which is why I figured I needed to
create this, so other developers can follow my team's lead and make their life easier provding
good security for their webapps.</p>
 <p>The solution I present to you here has operated successfully inside production environments
since 2015 and so we have maintained it for almost 2 years now and it's quite mature.  I write
this documentation to describe how it works and it's intended as something you should try
as well.</p>
 <p>Here are the technologies stack used within my extended framework:
