[OpenAFS] pam-afs-session 0.1 released
Fri, 10 Nov 2006 17:34:43 -0800
I'm pleased to announce release 0.1 of a new AFS PAM session module that
starts to implement the design that I posted to openafs-devel a while
back. Please note that this is the first beta release of a new package
and is not yet suitable for production use. I do, however, welcome
testing and feedback.
pam-afs-session is a PAM module intended for use with a Kerberos v5 PAM
module to obtain an AFS PAG and AFS tokens on login. It puts every new
session in a PAG regardless of whether it was authenticated with Kerberos
and runs a configurable external program to obtain tokens. It supports
using Heimdal's libkafs for the AFS interface and falls back to an
internal Linux-only implementation if libkafs isn't available.
You can download it from:
That URL also has a link to the to-do list. Currently, the module only
supports Linux and requires that you specify which program to run on the
PAM option line. See README for configuration details; there is no man
page yet, but will be.
The goals for a 1.0 release are porting to Solaris, adding a compile-time
default for the program to run to obtain tokens, and adding a man page, as
well as tracking down any bugs that show up in initial testing.
Please let me know of any problems or feature requests.
