GuardRails now available!

22 April 2011

The first release of the GuardRails source code is now available at https://github.com/guardrails/guardrails. GuardRails was developed by Jonathan Burket, Patrick Mutchler, Michael Weaver, and Muzzammil Zaveri.

GuardRails is a web application framework that extends Ruby on Rails to provide automatic support for data-centric security policies. Developers add annotations to their data models to describe their security policies, and GuardRails performs a source-to-source transformation to enforce those policies throughout the application. There will be a paper at USENIX WebApps 2011, GuardRails: A Data-Centric Web Application Security Framework, available soon, that provides more details.
