Kerberos Additions for the Solaris 10 8/07 Release

The MIT Kerberos V5 application programming interface (krb5-api) is supported in the Solaris 10 8/07 release. See the libkrb5(3LIB) and krb5-config(1) man pages for more information. Also, see the MIT Kerberos V5 project web pages at for more detailed documentation as it becomes available.

Although the krb5-api is now available, Sun strongly encourages the use of the GSS-API for network authentication and integrity and privacy as the GSS-API is security-mechanism independent and an IETF standard. See the libgss(3LIB) man page for more information.
