Fortress Rest: Integrate Security RESTfully

Fortress Rest functions as both a Policy Decision Point (PDP) and Policy Administration Point (PAP).

It wraps the Fortress APIs using a service-based (REST/JSON) protocol, enabling multi-platform support. A one-to-one correspondence exists between a Fortress API and a Fortress Rest service. For a list of services, visit the Javadoc.

The Fortress Rest security model uses its own APIs for enforcement ensuring tight security and audit trail. Additionally, Fortress Rest uses Java EE security for another layer of protection.
