Markus Moeller and I have made SPNEGO C APIs and Apache modules available at 
https://sourceforge.net/projects/modgssapache/. The project contains three 


fbopenssl (for lack of a better name) is a library of extensions to OpenSSL, 
including APIs for GSS-API and SPNEGO ASN.1 messages (or PDUs). fbopenssl 
has been tested on Linux, Microsoft Windows and Sun Solaris. fbopenssl still 
needs to be tested for memory leaks using a tool like Purify.

mod_spnego is an Apache 2.0 SPNEGO module that supports Kerberos 
authentication and user-level authorization. mod_spnego uses fbopenssl, MIT 
GSS-API and OpenSSL. mod_spnego has been tested on Linux, Microsoft Windows 
and Sun Solaris using Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0. Currently, mod_spnego 
does not support Apache 1.3 and group-level authorization.

modgssapache is a modified version of the Apache 1.3 GSS-API module located 
at http://meta.cesnet.cz/software/heimdal/negotiate.en.html. This version 
has been modified to support SPNEGO using open-source SPNEGO APIs from 
Microsoft. modgssapache has been tested on Linux and Sun Solaris.
