Release Notes for Styra DAS

This page describes the release notes for Styra DAS delivered in February 2021.

Release Summary​

Styra is built on the Open Policy Agent (OPA), a popular and widely deployed open source project developed by the founders of Styra. With primary credibility for the underlying technology, the Styra team and technology are both proven in production across verticals. Styra enables enterprises to define, enforce, validate, and continually monitor security, compliance and operational policies across the cloud-native application stack. Styra has reinvented the authorization solutions to mitigate customer risk, and reinforce commitment to trust and transparency in safeguarding customers’ data. Styra’s Declarative Authorization Service (DAS) is a sophisticated management plane that provides context-based guardrail, built from a graphical policy library to mitigate risk, reduce human error and accelerate development. Styra makes it possible for enterprises to implement policy-as-code controls and to prove their effectiveness to both internal and external security and compliance audiences.

February 9, 2021​

This Styra DAS 20210209 release delivers the new enhancement in the Systems section.

New Features and Enhancements​

This section describes the new enhancement in Styra DAS 20210209.

Systems​

  • Envoy Example App manifests now include a deployment of Styra Local Plane (SLP). SLP is a service that acts as an intermediary between the OPAs and Styra DAS. OPAs are configured to retrieve bundles from SLP rather than directly from Styra DAS. This increases availability as SLP fetches bundles from Styra DAS and persists them to disk, so policies are still available to new or restarted OPAs even if Styra DAS is unavailable.
