PowerBroker Identity Services is an application that joins Linux, Unix, and Mac OS machines to Microsoft Active Directory and securely authenticates users with their domain credentials. Features include: joining non-Windows systems to Active Directory domains in a single step from the command line or from a GUI; authenticating users with a single user name and password; enforcing the same password policies for all platforms; supporting multiple forests with one-way and two-way cross forest trusts; caching credentials in case your domain controller goes down; and providing single sign-on for SSH and Putty. It does not require Active Directory schema changes for installation.

Release Notes: This release significantly improves login times for users of many groups (in particular large, complex groups). Users in complex Active Directory topologies, involving multiple forests and a one-way trust, have a means of updating a password to comply with network policies. The new registry mechanism significantly improves upgrade support to allow users an easier way to apply new versions while maintaining current configurations. A smart service manager sequences the startup of daemons, significantly reducing errors.
