[asterisk-dev] Introduction to ASA - the Asterisk Security Architecture

The ACL in Asterisk could be handle in many ways, but i think we can  
use a kind of "security wrapper" who takes the ACL request and plugin  
to different Technologies to obtain users and permissions (v.g.  
Radius, OpenLdap, etc).

In a high transactional scenario, we need to keep the most important  
info in memory and request to DB or directory technology if the info  
is not available.

i try to graph the basic concept:

The ASA use TCP sockets and permit to many * servers obtain the info,  
but if the services fail, everything go down :S

Ideas welcome.

Best Regards... Fernando "El Pop" Romo
