Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Fortress 2.0.3 Released
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2018 16:07:11 GMT
The Apache Directory Project announces its tenth release of 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.

Since 2.0.1, Fortress supports certain aspects of Attribute-based Access Control.  Specifically,
dynamic attribute constraints placed on user-role activations.  For a description on ABAC
rationale and supports, check out these posts:
