Release Notes: Although it mainly fixes bugs and adds some minor features, this release includes improved support for one-time passwords (such as time-based tokens, token provisioning, and additional OTP token vendors), introduces a new, simplified user-selectable authentication control, fixes and improves PAM-based authentication, and adds support for SQLite.
Release Notes: This release features some significant performance and administrative improvements, including a new indexing mechanism for access control rules to accelerate searches, re-introduction of the authorization caching feature to optionally bypass authorization checking of requests after they have been approved once, and a complete rewrite of the dacs_admin Web service to provide a fully REST-ful, unified, and comprehensive administrative Web-based console.
Release Notes: Notable improvements in this release include a new "authentication-at-authorization-time" feature that allows users to be authenticated non-interactively, based on a request URL, argument, or other context; a new "Rlinks" feature that allows URLs to be associated with authorizing rules and identities; and an assortment of new functions and configuration directives.
Release Notes: Notable improvements include a new, 'simple' style of authentication for inherently password-less accounts, improvements to the OPTION directive and a new OPTION* directive for better run-time control, a new AUTH_SUCCESS directive, improved handling of binary data, hmac(), digest(), and random() functions, upgrades to Samba 3.0.23d and OpenLDAP 2.3.31, a COOKIE_HTTPONLY directive, and a new local_ldap_roles module that can assign LDAP/ADS roles to any user.
Release Notes: This is mainly a bugfix and minor enhancements release. All users are urged to upgrade. Improvements include a new authentication module, local_http_authenticate (e.g. used to authenticate against a Google account), distributed generation of user info records (login/logout/access events), improved revocation list processing, built-in versions of roles modules, re-introduction of local_pam_authenticate, and new parsing/array functionality for the setvar() function.
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix and minor enhancements release. All users are urged to upgrade. It supports strong authentication based on the Authenex A-Key hardware token (and other OATH-HOTP/RFC 4226 compliant products). This provides a very low cost and convenient path to two-factor authentication, not only for Web-based single sign-on and CGI programs, but for virtually any software. No additional software is required to use the Authenex token with DACS.
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix and minor enhancements release. Major improvements include new configuration directives to enhance security and detect poor passwords, improved tracking of user requests, and new applications of the DACS rule processing engine (dacs_transform, dacstransform, dacssched, and the rule() predicate).
Release Notes: This bugfix and minor enhancements release includes a port to Apache 2.2, dacsauth (an initial version of a command line authentication program), and a new authentication module for authenticating via the Central Authentication Service (CAS).
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix and minor enhancements release. New features include the ability to authenticate against Apache htpasswd and htdbm files using any DACS password-oriented authentication module; a DACS implementation of RFC 2617 HTTP Basic Authentication supporting authentication by any password-oriented DACS authentication module; a DACS implementation of RFC 2617 HTTP Digest Authentication for authenticating against Apache htdigest files; and built-in versions of authentication modules can be selected.
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix and minor enhancements release. A new cross-federation identity transfer mechanism has been added. It not only provides support for single sign-on among DACS federations, but also between a DACS federation and other identity management systems. See dacs_auth_transfer(8) for details.
