      Hi All,


          We are glad to announce that a timed version was released for PicketBox 5.0.0.

           PicketBox is a project that works wonders for application security. Here are some highlights:

        • You can use it as a standalone API for pure JavaSE applications or in a JavaEE environment as well.
        • Decouple applications from security code.
        • Fully integrated with PicketLink Identity Management Project.
        • Choice of Authorization Managers.  (Drools based authorization, XACML based authorization, Deltaspike Security based authorization or write your own authorization mechanism).
        • Application Session Management.
        • Security Events Handling
        • Auditing
        • Supports different authentication mechanisms: username/password, One-Time Passwords, Certificate, Digest, etc. You can easily plug your own mechanisms.
        • Choice of HTTP Authentication Schemes (BASIC, DIGEST, FORM, CLIENT-CERT or you write your own authentication scheme).
        • JSON security.
        • Integration code CDI applications.
        • and more ...


      Please refer to the documentation at https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/SECURITY/Java+Application+Security. You can also check the Getting Started guide and some examples/quickstarts:



      We did this timed release to get some feedback about what was done so far. Please contribute with ideas and suggestions.

      Best Regards !

      The PicketBox Team
