Subject Apache Kerby 2.0.0 is released
Date Mon, 28 Jan 2019 12:04:31 GMT
The Apache Directory team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Kerby™ 2.0.0.

Apache Kerby™ is a Java Kerberos binding. It aims to provide a rich,
intuitive and interoperable implementation, library, KDC and various
facilities that integrates PKI, OTP and token(OAuth2) as desired in modern
environments such as cloud, Hadoop and mobile.

This release has 43 resolved issues since the 1.1.1 (May 2018) release. The
main new function is HAS (Hadoop Authentication Service). HAS is a solution
to support  authentication in the open source big data ecosystem in cloud
computing platforms with the following features:

1. It provides a new authentication mechanism to customize and integrate
with existing user authentication and authorization systems.
2. It provides REST APIs and facility tools to simplify Kerberos support
3. It provides a MySQL backend for High Availability.
4. The new authentication mechanism now supports most of the components of
the open source big data ecosystem with little or no changes to the
components themselves, including HDFS, HBase, Zookeeper, Hive, Spark...
