This message starts a two week review of a project to add RFC 3244
server support to MIT Kerberos
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
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 (current|log). The existing kadmin server does not support
TCP; it needs an event loop similar to the KDC in order to support TCP.
