The core DACS technologies provide
powerful, reliable identity management and access control functionality.
The open source DACS distribution
provides both application developers and Apache web site administrators with
a wide range of options for harnessing its authentication and authorization
Security software requires considerable domain-specific knowledge and is
challenging to develop.
DACS can often supply exactly what
you need to extend the capabilities of your web sites to meet your
access control requirements, or to address your software application's
security needs, without having to write any code.
DACS consists of three "products":
The dacscheck utility can be called by virtually any program or
script to perform access control tests.
And the dacsauth utility can be called by virtually any program or
script to perform authentication tests.
A variety of utilities and web services is available to middleware
programmers, allowing them to customize DACS
or integrate it with their environment.
These DACS products share the same core
components and can work with each other.
