Board Report, Oltu PMC

Oltu PMC Chair: Antonio Sanso (

Oltu is a project to develop a Java library which provides an API specification for, and an unconditionally compliant implementation of the OAuth v2.0 specifications.
OAuth is a mechanism that allows users to authenticate and authorise access by another party to resources they control while avoiding the need to share their username and password credentials.


Apache Oltu 1.0 was released on March 3rd 2014.

Apache Oltu Oauth2 module version 1.0.1 was released September 24th 2015.

A vote is currently undergoing in order to release Oauth2 module version 1.0.2


The core part of the project related to 'The OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework' (RFC 6749) is pretty stable due the fact RFC 6749 is now a standard.
A stable version 1.0 was released on March 3rd 2014 and some minor releases are going out regularly for bug fixing. A vote is currently undergoing in order to release OAuth2 module version 1.0.2 . At the moment we are working on JSON Web Encryption support ( OLTU-80 - Getting issue details... STATUS ).  
Users activity is growing slowly but steadily (the user@ mailing list has got new messages from new users). We have got quite some feedbacks from users (included patches). Lately we have been fixing a bunch of users reported issues ( hence the new upcoming release.
