"With Red Hat Directory Server, we are offering the core components of a full identity and security management infrastructure. By open sourcing it to the Fedora Project on the same day of its release, we have reiterated our commitment to the community." - Javed Tapia, director, Red Hat India.
The company has also announced the Red Hat Certificate Management System, which will allow customers to manage user identities, provide single sign-on and token management using X.509 certificates, LDAP and PKI security technologies. When paired with the new Directory Server, Red Hat will be able to more easily compete with solutions from Novell, Sun and Microsoft.
