What is OpenLDAP Fortress
OpenLDAP Fortress, or simply Fortress, is a standards based and
Open Source Identity Access Management Java SDK for LDAP v3 compliant
systems. Fortress is 100% compliant with RBAC, ARBAC02 and IETF's
password policy draft. Fortress was developed by JoshuaTree Software
and integrated installation packages that also include OpenLDAP
binaries can be obtained from http://iamfortress.org.
What can Fortress SDK do?
Contained within this SDK are APIs and utilities to perform
authentication, authorization, administration, auditing and password
policies. The most important package in this system is
com.jts.fortress which contains all of the public APIs that need to be
called by outside programs. To learn more about Fortress, checkout
the javadoc that is created as part of the SDK build from this package
or from http://jts.us/iamfortress/javadocs/api/index.html.
In addition to programmatic APIs, there are also plug-ins available
that may be used to provide declarative security to applications that
deploy Java EE containers.
What technologies are used?
Fortress SDK runs on any platform that supports Java technology and
LDAP v3 protocols. Functionality that extends beyond LDAP v3 is
provided via OpenLDAP specific features. In other words Fortress was
optimized to run on OpenLDAP.
What are the conditions of use?
This software development toolkit is open source, thus free to use and
distribute via the OpenLDAP Public License and compatible licenses,
such as the new BSD License.
