This project proposes to add two features. The first is support for Unicode principal names and case insensitive principal search. The goal of this project is to get behavior more similar to Microsoft and to search for principals in a manner that supports international use somewhat better. This includes case insensitive search and support for ignoring accents in search.
Protocol extensions for general internationalization or character set conversion are specifically out of scope. The second feature is generalized support for name canonicalization and server principal aliases.
