Dear list,
it is a pleasure to announce the release of GeoShield (version 0.2.1).

GeoShield is a project born to offer a centralized way to define 
security access-control to geo-services.
It acts like a proxy, intercepting all the communications between 
clients and OGC compliant services (WMS, WFS, and in future WPS, SOS).
GeoShield is able to manage users and groups, it handles authentication 
and privileges settings among groups and registered services. It is 
capable to analyse requests applying the filters set to the user and 
manipulating the response.
It is a server side security software to secure OGC services.

The interested people can find the source code and a web archive package 
(.war) ready for Tomcat:

While a short installation guide is here (on the project website):

Because documentation is still very poor, if you have questions or 
remarks, please don't hesitate to contact us, using this discussion 
group: http://groups.google.com/group/geoshield-project
