We are pleased to announce the release of the Curity Identity Server 8.3.
This release contains several enhancements and fixes, including the second release of Verifiable Credential Issuance.
Here are some of the highlights:
Second release of Verifiable Credential Issuance, now with RAR support
The 8.3 release introduces support for Rich Authorization Requests (RAR) when issuing verifiable credentials. This makes it easier for clients to request authorization for credentials. Decentralized identity support remains experimental, but this will enable more use cases and tests.
Token introspectors in the Java SDK for Token Procedure Plugins
The Java SDK has been updated to support intropectors in token procedure plugins. This means using the introspection side of a token issuer inside the plugin is possible. It enables many new use cases to be implemented, as the custom token procedure plugins now can accept additional tokens and introspect these before issuing a response.
New metrics for the HTTP client connection pool
This release also introduces an update to the metrics subsystem – adding insights into the HTTP client’s connection pool. Monitoring is important when running identity systems, and, combined with the alarms and logs, these metrics provide a quick way to notice inconsistencies in the system.
