The Apache Directory Project announces version 2.0.1 of Apache Fortress

Apache Fortress is a computer security access management facility written in Java. Other platforms use the Apache Fortress Rest component. Fortress provides a fine-grained authorization security model using role-based access control semantics. It’s built to scale to many thousands of requests per second on top of a fault-tolerant backend using LDAP and runs in many production environments today.

New features include:

• Unix RFC2307bis posixAccount (User) and posixGroup (Role) auxiliary object classes.
• Enforcement of arbitrary constraints during role activation with dynamic attributes like location, organization and account.
