FreeIPA is an integrated security information management solution
combining Linux (Fedora), 389 Directory Server, MIT Kerberos and NTP.
FreeIPA binds together a number of technologies and adds a web interface
and command-line administration tools.
The FreeIPA UI approach attempts to use a Domain Specific languages for UI definition. While I like how it has emerged thus far, I don’t feel we are yet where we need it to be.
