createTank releases FOSS Authentication Libraries

WHITE HALL, WV — createTank® has teamed with MarcoPoloLoco and cr3473 (pronounced "create") to release free and open source (FOSS) authentication and session management libraries for Google App Engine.  The libraries support App Engine Python and Java SDKs under the monikers cerberus-python and cerberus-java.

The original library was written in Python for the server implementation of MarcoPoloLoco's spacetime messaging app. When developing other systems, cr3473 staff ported the library to Java preserving design patterns for interchangeable support. The team expects the libraries to evolve into a complete open source authentication system in the future with the release of RESTful web services and mobile client libraries (Android and iOS).
