An announcement has been sent to krbdev@mit.edu starting a review of this project. That review will conclude on December 19, 2008.

Comments can be sent to krbdev@mit.edu.

The RFC 3244 project adds support for the Microsoft set password protocol server to MIT Kerberos. In addition, it adds support for both that protocol and the traditional kpasswd protocol over TCP. This protocol is added for better compatibility with Microsoft Windows.

No new public APIs are exposed; MIT Kerberos already contains an API for the client side of this protocol.

The only non-obvious change introduced by the implementation is kadmin/server/network.c modeled on src/kdc/network.c (raw | annotated | history). The existing kadmin server does not support TCP; it needs an event loop similar to the KDC in order to support TCP.
