Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Fortress 2.0.0-RC1 Released
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2016 18:28:22 GMT
The Apache Directory Project announces the fifth release of Fortress.  

FORTRESS provides a Role-Based Access Control system that is fully ANSI INCITS 359 compliant
and production ready.  Its components may be embedded as a runtime Java library (fortress-core),
secure Apache Tomcat web deployments (fortress-realm), HTML pages for administration (fortress-web),
and RESTful service wrappers of the core apis (fortress-rest).

Fortress not only covers policy enforcement (i.e. authentication, authorization), but manages
the policy lifecycle with apis to add, update, delete and interrogate data stored in the backend
LDAP repository.  

Additionally, there is support for administrative delegation to control which security administrators
may update what policy elements under a particular organization’s users, roles and permissions.

To download source or binary packages of this release: http://directory.apache.org/fortress/downloads.html

Or, the components are downloadable via Maven’s central repository under group name: org.apache.directory.fortress
