Authentication options get a lot of press these days, but there is another Auth that can still be a pain: Authorization. ACLatraz from Kriss Kowalik caught our eye because it’s inspired by *nix Access Control Lists (ACLs), powered by Redis, and has a sense of humor.
I still think that graph databased are a better fit for ACL. But if you are already running Redis, why not having a library ready for dealing with ACL. Security is critical!
