Greg
(to Nathaniel) think we're done. Maybe one more thing.

Simo proposes negative cache for service principals in GSS.

Ben
There's a long 30-second timeout on ssh if the target doesn't support GSS.
Greg
It was making ~120 queries. Domain walk. Multiple KDC lookups etc.
Simo
Firefox falls back on NTLM. Each img does a new GSS attempt. Long timeouts.

Maybe negative cache should have a short timeout? a few seconds?

Greg
Not more than 5 seconds.
Greg
Probably won't be able to do this in time for 1.12.
Simo
Red Hat might be interested in process-backed ccache.

Some discussion about strategies -- doors, dbus, etc. Some challenges with things like sudo.

Simo
Might find someone at Red Hat to do it.
Simo
GSS/NTLM. Can't use MIT crypto; used OpenSSL instead. Not exported. No Unicode support.
Zhanna
Why OpenSSL and not NSS?
Simo
Needed MD4.
