 ## How Does It Work?
 
-To learn, check out the quickstarts:
+Fortress is a Role-Based Access Control security system.  It uses a directory server to store
the information about users, roles, permissions, etc.  Out-of-the-box it supports either ApacheDS
or OpenLDAP servers but is LDAPv3 compliant and would work with any compliant system.

+### Api usage
+Probably the best place to start is the javadoc.  To understand how RBAC works, look at the
interfaces like AccessMgr, AdminMgr and ReviewMgr.  For ARBAC add 'Del' to the name - for
delegated.  DelAdminMgr, DelAccessMgr, etc.  For password policies, PwPolicyMgr.
+
+### Configuration
+Next is to understand how the runtime works.  As you might expect, Fortress requires a large
number of parameters that bind it to a runtime environment.  For example the LDAP server's
coordinates, hostname, port, suffix, service account credentials and more.  The configuration
subsystem pulls these parameters from a variety of locations.

 ### IETF Password Policies
 
-OpenLDAP has supported this draft since 2005.  Fortress adds by integrating with its administrative
and access control APIs.  These APIs enable outside apps to participate and manipulate OpenLDAP
password policies without understanding the specifics of how they work. Fortress provides
services for setting up new policies and ensuring password policies are tracked and enforced
across all avenues.
