midPoint release named after Charles Robert Darwin

MidPoint 3.7 “Darwin”

MidPoint 3.7 “Darwin” was released. As the release nickname suggests Darwin is an evolutionary release. It brings few major features and changes. But more importantly it brings a large number of gradual improvements to almost every part of midPoint.

The most obvious change in midPoint 3.7 is its stand-alone deployment form. Previous midPoint versions were designed as traditional Java web applications, distributed in a WAR file that had to be deployed in a web container.

All that is needed is to download midPoint and start it up. No need to deploy it to a web container. The traditional WAR file is still provided as an deployment option and it is still supported. But the stand-alone form factor is now the recommended way to run midPoint. […]

midPoint and GDPR

midPoint and GDPR

General data protection regulation (GDPR) is all about good management of identity data. And that is exactly what identity management (IDM) technologies do. Also, it is unlikely that GDPR compliance can be effectively implemented without any support from the technology. And that’s where IDM systems come in again. Overall, IDM technologies are almost perfect fit for GDPR compliance. But how exactly can identity management system such as our very own midPoint help with GDPR? […]
