The following is a list of enhancements implemented in Active Roles 7.5.3.

Table 1: General Active Roles enhancements
Enhancement Issue ID

Previously, Group Family Key comparison operations (such as group reevaluations) in scheduled tasks or manually performed operations had suboptimal performance when being performed on a large number of users and on different user properties.

This has been enhanced, so that such comparisons are now faster when a large number of Group Families are affected.

Previously, group reevaluation operations affecting a large number of Dynamic Groups had suboptimal performance. This has been enhanced to increase performance. 300512

Active Roles7.5.3 introduces support for cryptography libraries and algorithms compliant with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2. For more information on FIPS-compliant libraries and algorithms, see the official Approved Security Functions for FIPS document.

NOTE: Consider the following when planning to use FIPS-compliant cryptography libraries or algorithms:

  • Although Active Roles continues to support non-FIPS compliant cryptography libraries and algorithms, it will not work properly if it is configured to use non-FIPS compliant solutions in a FIPS-compliant environment.

  • If you already use FIPS-compliant security algorithms in your environment (such as the TripleDES security algorithm, or the SHA256 hash algorithm), you must export your existing configuration, and import it in a new Active Roles installation.
