Apache Santuario 1.5.4 and Apache WSS4j 1.6.10 released

Two new bug-fix releases of note in Apache security products:

Apache Santuario 1.5.4 has been released. Amongst the issues fixed is a thread-safety problem when secure validation is enabled, and a possible NPE due to ThreadLocal storage when an application is deployed in certain containers.

Apache WSS4J 1.6.10 has also been released. The issues fixed are available here. A performance issue was fixed in the MemoryReplayCache, which is used to guard against replay attacks. An interop issue was fixed with older Axis 1.x stacks. UsernameTokens with no password elements have been explicitly disallowed by default (although this is configurable). Finally, "time-to-live" functionality has been added to disallow "stale" UsernameTokens (with older Created values).
