Projects/Split DAL Interface

From K5Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This is an early stage project for MIT Kerberos. It is being fleshed out by its proponents. Feel free to help flesh out the details of this project. After the project is ready, it will be presented for review and approval.


This project has been split out of Projects/Database Access Layer cleanup.

Background

As of krb5 1.8, the DAL interface is used by both the KDC and kadmind. Bridge-type KDB modules, which are intended to be administered out of band, only need to implement a subset of DAL functionality. Having the two interfaces combined into one vtable makes these KDB modules less clean.

Goals

This project is to split the DAL into KDC and kadmind interfaces.
