What is JSDSI?
JSDSI is a Java implementation of the SPKI/SDSI standard.
It began as Alexander Morcos's Master's thesis at MIT;
his code lives on in the "sdsi" Java package. In 2002,
Sameer Ajmani reimplemented the Java SDSI API with several
improvements and renamed the package "jsdsi." These improvements
include full support for SPKI tags,
more efficient parsing and marshalling of SPKI/SDSI objects,
better testing using JUnit, XML support, and
more powerful certificate chain discovery algorithms.
JSDSI is now hosted by Sourceforge and has several
developers contributing new features like an improved
build process and LDAP support.
