[edit] Timeline

This is only an approximate timeline.

  • Oct. 2011 -- make release branch
  • Jan. 2012 -- final release

[edit] Code quality

  • Update the Fortuna implementation to more accurately implement the description in Cryptography Engineering, and make it the default PRNG.
  • Add an alternative PRNG that relies on the OS native PRNG.

[edit] Developer experience

  • Add the ability for GSSAPI servers to use any keytab key for a specified service, if the server specifies a host-based name with no hostname component.
  • Kernel / user split (for NFS, etc.): Add build infrastructure demonstrating and testing a message-processing subset of the gss-krb5 mechanism suitable for kernel filesystems.
  • Allow rd_safe and rd_priv to ignore the remote address.
  • Rework KDC and kadmind networking code to use an event loop architecture.
  • Pluggable configuration back-end: Allow applications and integrators to override krb5.conf as the source of krb5 configuration data.

[edit] End-user experience

  • Localization: Create infrastructure for localization of client user interface messages using gettext.
  • Credential selection: Add a facility to select between credentials for different Kerberos identities based on the service being contacted. (This will be confirmed).

[edit] Administrator experience

  • Add more complete support for renaming principals.
  • Add the profile variable ignore_acceptor_hostname in libdefaults. If set, GSSAPI will ignore the hostname component of acceptor names supplied by the server, allowing any keytab key matching the service to be used.
  • Add support for string attributes on principal entries.
  • Allow password changes to work over NATs.

[edit] Protocol evolution

  • Referrals: Finish implementation following IETF updates.
  • PKINIT hash agility: Allow PKINIT to use newer hash algorithms than SHA-1.
