Owner: Dennis van Dok <dennisvd@nikhef.nl>

* Package name    : lcas
  Version         : 1.3.17

  Description     : Authorization service for grid credentials

LCAS makes binary ('yes' or 'no') authorization decisions at the site
and resource level. In making this decision, it can use a variety of
inputs: the 'grid' name of the user (the Subject Distinguished Name),
any VO attributes the user has (like VOMS FQANs), the name of the
executable the user intends to execute. It supports basic black and
white list functionality, but also more complex VOMS-based
expressions, based on the GACL language.
