We are pleased to announce the release of the Curity Identity Server 8.7.
Though minor, this release contains several exciting new features, enhancements and fixes.
Here are some of the highlights:
The 8.7 release introduces the long-awaited password policies feature that allows you to configure rules for password strength, age and reuse. It is enabled by an overhaul of the database account structure. To ensure that this change does not produce downtime, we have included a migration mode in the data source used to store new policies which will migrate accounts to the new structure as users log in. Experimental in this release, password policies will be non-experiment in 9.0.
DynamoDB Support for Database Clients
Another new feature is the DynamoDB support for database clients. The GraphQL API is used to configure these – like when JDBC is used, and clients are surfaced in the DevOps Dashboard just as when a relational database is used to store them. This gives you even greater flexibility in how and where to store your data.
Hypermedia Authentication API Passkey and WebAuthn Support for Android
Finally, we have completed the passkey and WebAuthn support for Hypermedia Authentication API (HAAPI) - the Android SDK now includes support for native integrations. Just like for iOS, this produces a great user experience because passkeys make use of the built-in biometric systems on Android devices to deliver a smooth, safe user journey.
