This is the 1.4 release of Apache Rampart.

Apache Rampart 1.4 is a toolkit that provides implementations of the
WS-Sec* specifications for Apache Axis2 1.4, based on Apache WSS4J 1.5.4
and the Apache AXIOM-DOOM 1.2.7 implementations.

You can download the releases from:
http://ws.apache.org/rampart/download/1.4/download.cgi

There are two main Apache Axis2 modules provided with this release.

* rampart-1.4.mar
	This provides support for WS-Security and WS-SecureConversation features.
* rahas-1.4.mar
~        This module provides the necessary components to enable
SecurityTokenService functionality on a service.

Apache Rampart 1.4 uses a configuration model based on WS-Policy and
WS-Security Policy. It is important to note that the Apache Rampart 1.0
style configuration is also available even though being marked as
deprecated.

Apache Rampart 1.4 can be successfully used with the next Apache
Sandesha2 release targeted towards Apache Axis2 1.4 to configure
WS-SecureConversation + WS-ReliableMessaging scenarios.

other WS-Security implementations.
