I am pleased to announce the Spring Authorization Server project. It is a community-driven project led by the Spring Security team and is focused on delivering Authorization Server support to the Spring community.
The story of how we got here is long, but the key takeaway is short and sweet: Spring would not be what it is without our amazing community.
Almost a decade ago, we brought in a community-driven, open-source project, Spring Security OAuth, and made it part of the Spring portfolio of projects. Since its inception, it has evolved into a mature project that supports a large portion of the OAuth specification, including resource servers, clients, login, and the authorization server. It is no wonder that it has become the basis for UAA, which, among other things, acts as the identity management service for all Cloud Foundry installations. The Spring Security OAuth project has become a model project and is a testament to what our wonderful community can accomplish.
