Fedora releases Fedora Directory Server 1.0

The Fedora community has released Fedora Directory Server version 1.0. This is an enterprise edition user directory server similar to Microsoft’s Active Directory product. FDS is based off of the protocol LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol). Features included are:

  • 4-Way Multi-Master Replication
  • Scalability: thousands of operations per second, tens of thousands of concurrent users, tens of millions of entries, hundreds of gigabytes of data
  • SSLv3, TLSv1, and SASL for secure authentication and transport
  • Support for most LDAPv3 features, including many common controls and extensions
  • Schema update over LDAP
  • Flexible in-tree Access Control Information (ACIs), updatable over LDAP
  • On-line configuration and management over LDAP
  • Graphical console for all facets of user, group, and server managemen

While I’m not all about Fedora itself, this project definitely has its good things. Check it out.
