Tcat - Enterprise Tomcat Server

Security Permissions

Today, some of the most mission critical and highly sensitive applications are running on Apache Tomcat. Yet controlling, monitoring and administering Apache Tomcat often requires granting operational and development staff full access to the production servers and applications. This can cause issues with data and operational security, not to mention problems with regulatory compliance for the organization. The alternative might be to completely block access to production Tomcat servers from everyone except for one or two "super-users." However, this approach leads to inefficiencies and causes significant delays in detecting and fixing problems.

Tcat Server provides an elegant and easy-to-implement solution to this problem. By providing fine grained security permissions, Tcat Server allows you to specify multiple roles with varying levels of access. For example, "administrators" might have full access, while "developers" might have read-only access to key monitoring and diagnostic data. Tcat Server comes with a default set of roles with pre-defined permissions that cover most use cases, or administrators can customize these roles and even create new ones.

Separate access by roles

Create user roles specific to the tasks that a group of people need to perform, and limit access for that group to a specific set of functionality. For example, a "deployer" may only be allowed to do deployment actions and not control the server.

Customize roles with fine-grained permissions

Use the out-of-the-box roles, or create and customize your own - Tcat Server comes with a rich set of fine-grained permissions that you can assign to any role.

Integrate with LDAP based authentication

Avoid recreating the wheel and leverage existing LDAP-based systems such as Microsoft Active Directory, Novell Directory Services, openLDAP and more.

Create new users in seconds

Creating a new user and granting them a role is as easy as few mouse clicks, making it easy to add members to the team or to change their permissions.
