Authentication, authorization and session tracking for web,
server side and desktop applications.
Domain management and creation allowing partitioning of
the system into separate domains each with it's own
set of data. Each domain can be independently managed and
configured by a designated domain administrator. Support
for administrative domains used to manage other domains.
Users have ability (if authorized) to create their own
domains without system administrator intervention.

data outside of their designated domain.

data objects, groups of data objects based on attribute
