SPOPS (Simple Perl Object Persistence w/ Security) is a robust and powerful Perl module that allows you to serialize objects. It is unique in that it also allows you to apply security to these objects using a fairly simple but powerful scheme of users and groups. It's also unique in that for most objects, you will not need to write any code. All you need is a fairly simple configuration file, and you can have a class for your object ready to go, right out of thin air.
