Hi all,

Over at Directory we have an initial attempt at an identity solution in
place called Triplesec.
It does the usual AAA with some additional things like mobile keyfobs
however it's authorization
policy management features might benefit from this project or there may be
some overlap.  Here's
a link btw for some additional information on tsec:

http://directory.apache.org/triplesec

Specifically the following information refers to the authorization policy
store and an API to access
the information therein which can be stored in LDAP or in an LDIF file
(exported from LDAP).

http://directory.apache.org/triplesec/guardian-api-users-guide.html
http://directory.apache.org/triplesec/authorization-using-guardian-api.html
http://directory.apache.org/triplesec/administration-tool-users-guide.html

So the big question is there much overlap here?  An initial glance tells me
there might not be
but I may be wrong.  Thoughts?
