DSS is pleased to announce DACS version 1.4.0.

DACS is:
  o a flexible and powerful role-based access control system
  o a set of feature-rich authentication methods
  o an Apache 2.0.X module and suite of CGI programs
  o a federated identity management system (single sign-on)
  o oriented towards (but not limited to) controlling access to web service
    requests made using standard web browsers
  o a C/C++ toolkit for building new authentication and access control
    functionality into programs, whether web-based or not
  o for Unix-type platforms (currently), such as Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris

DACS can help you to manage access to web resources in many situations,
whether you have just one web server, several web servers at one site, or
many web servers spread across the Internet. You may find it to be
useful simply as a universal authentication mechanism for a single Apache
server or as a full-fledged, single sign-on multi-server identity management
and access control system.

DACS 1.4.0 is released under dual licensing terms (a GPL-compatible open
source license and a commercial license).

DACS is hosted on SourceForge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/dacs
