Subject Fortress Web Improvements
Date Mon, 18 May 2020 16:44:53 GMT
Hello,

Notifying the project of some recent changes with Apache Fortress Web.

Two enhancements:

* [FC-281 Upgrade to Wicket version 8](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FC-281)

Long overdue upgrade was causing a backlog of other dependencies getting behind.  Now on version
8.x of Wicket, and latest Spring security 5.x, this app well placed for continued support
in the future.

* [FC-282 Make ARBAC checks configurable](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FC-282)

Includes documenting:

Now, like in Fortress Rest, the Arbac checks are configurable, and are turned off by default.

Which is just one of 5 layers of security as described:

[Fortress Web Security Model](https://github.com/apache/directory-fortress-commander/blob/master/README-SECURITY-MODEL.md)

Making it perhaps the one of the most well secured administrative apps in a landscape full
of inadequately secured administrative apps.
