MidPoint was a part of EU-Free and Open Source Software Auditing (EU-FOSSA2) bug bounty program. This was an unique experience in many ways. There were many surprises along the way and it was far from being easy. But we have gone through that and in the end it was extremely useful. It has made midPoint stronger and more secure.
We are happy to announce the first midPoint global meeting at the 3rd Hackathon event organized by EU DIGIT’s FOSSA 2 program. Community is the engine for midPoint product bringing its stability, security as well as new features and improvements.

All IDM solutions needs to be configured and customized to be useful – and all self-respecting IDM products are built to support this. However, if the solution is customized too much, it can cause huge problems. This is known as “customization trap”. […]
