Following the launch of of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, Red Hat have introduced Enterprise Linux 7.1 Beta.

A number of enhancements have been introduced with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 Beta, including the anticipated ability to provide strong one-time password (OTP) authentication.

Part of the Identity Management in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 beta, OTP authentication is deployed via LDAP and Kerberos protocols leveraging software tokens provided by FreeOTP and hardware tokens provided by different vendors.

In addition, the beta introduces a new Certificate Authority (CA) management tool which makes it easy for customers using IdM to change a CA certificate and alter the trust chain.

The beta also enhances OpenLMI – a unified management tooling and industry-standard management framework. New capabilities address managing storage and introducing support for thin provisioning in LVM (Logical Volume Manager).

Furthermore, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 beta makes it easy for system administrators to access Ceph block storage devices "out-of-the-box", thanks to the inclusion of Ceph userspace components and the Ceph RADOS Block Devices (RBD) kernel module.

Application development, delivery, portability and isolation has also been improved through increased Linux containers functionality, including Docker, across physical, virtual and cloud deployments as well as development, test, and production environments.
