Sortie de la Release 1.7 de la librairie Kerberos 5

kerberos-prot-logoL’équipe du MIT Kerberos a annoncé la disponibilité de la version 5 1.7 de la librairie Kerberos. Cette nouvelle version corrige un certain nombre de bugs, notamment pour les plate-formes Windows.

Pour les environnements Windows, voici la liste des modifications tel que présenté sur le site du MIT [ http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/krb5-1.7/ ]:

Compatibility with Microsoft Windows:

  • Follow client principal referrals in the client library when obtaining initial tickets.
  • KDC can issue realm referrals for service principals based on domain names.
  • Extensions supporting DCE RPC, including three-leg GSS context setup and unencapsulated GSS tokens inside SPNEGO.
  • Microsoft GSS_WrapEX, implemented using the gss_iov API, which is similar to the equivalent SSPI functionality. This is needed to support some instances of DCE RPC.
  • NTLM recognition support in GSS-API, to facilitate dropping in an NTLM implementation for improved compatibility with older releases of Microsoft Windows.
  • KDC support for principal aliases, if the back end supports them. Currently, only the LDAP back end supports aliases.
  • Support Microsoft set/change password (RFC 3244) protocol in kadmind.
  • Implement client and KDC support for GSS_C_DELEG_POLICY_FLAG, which allows a GSS application to request credential delegation only if permitted by KDC policy.
