Kerberos Version 5, Release 1.0 Release Notes The MIT Kerberos Team Unpacking the Source Distribution --------------------------------- The source distribution of Kerberos 5 comes in three gzipped tarfiles, krb5-1.0.src.tar.gz, krb5-1.0.doc.tar.gz, and krb5-1.0.crypto.tar.gz. The krb5-1.0.doc.tar.gz contains the doc/ directory and this README file. The krb5-1.0.src.tar.gz contains the src/ directory and this README file, except for the crypto library sources, which are in krb5-1.0.crypto.tar.gz. Instruction on how to extract the entire distribution follow. These directions assume that you want to extract into a directory called DIST. If you have the GNU tar program and gzip installed, you can simply do: mkdir DIST cd DIST gtar zxpf krb5-1.0.src.tar.gz gtar zxpf krb5-1.0.crypto.tar.gz gtar zxpf krb5-1.0.doc.tar.gz If you don't have GNU tar, you will need to get the FSF gzip distribution and use gzcat: mkdir DIST cd DIST gzcat krb5-1.0.src.tar.gz | tar xpf - gzcat krb5-1.0.crypto.tar.gz | tar xpf - gzcat krb5-1.0.doc.tar.gz | tar xpf - Both of these methods will extract the sources into DIST/krb5-1.0/src and the documentation into DIST/krb5-1.0/doc. Unpacking the Binary Distribution --------------------------------- Binary distributions of Kerberos V5 are provided merely as convenience to those people who wish to try out Kerberos V5 without needing to do a full compile of Kerberos. MIT and the MIT Kerberos V5 development team make no guarantees that we will continue to supply binary distributions for future releases of Kerberos V5, or for any operating system/platform in particular. These binary distributions have been prepared by members of the MIT Kerberos V5 development team, or by volunteers who have graciously agreed to test the pre-release snapshot. Each binary build is PGP signed by the person who prepared the binary distribution for that particular platform. While the binary distribution is *supposed* to correspond exactly to the 1.0 Kerberos V5 source release, you have no way of knowing whether the person who prepared the binary release might have inserted a trojan horse, or a trapdoor. For all you know, the binary distribution might be mailing all of your Kerberos keys to kremvax!boris. (The same is true for the source distribution, but at least you can audit the code yourself!) For this reason, if you are planning on using Kerberos V5 in production, we strongly suggest that you obtain the source distribution and compile it from source yourself. The binary distributions have been compiled so that they will install in /usr/local. To install, su to root and and type the command: cd /usr/local gunzip < /tmp/krb5-1.0.<platform>.tar.gz | tar xvf - Building and Installing Kerberos 5 ---------------------------------- The first file you should look at is doc/install.ps; it contains the notes for building and installing Kerberos 5. The info file krb5-install.info has the same information in info file format. You can view this using the GNU emacs info-mode, or by using the standalone info file viewer from the Free Software Foundation. Other good files to look at are admin-guide.ps and user-guide.ps, which contain the system administrator's guide, and the user's guide, respectively. They are also available as info files kerberos-admin.info and krb5-user.info, respectively. Reporting Bugs -------------- Please report any problems/bugs/comments using the krb5-send-pr program. The krb5-send-pr program will be installed in the sbin directory once you have successfully compiled and installed Kerberos V5 (or if you have installed one of our binary distributions). If you are not able to use krb5-send-pr because you haven't been able compile and install Kerberos V5 on any platform, you may send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notes and Major Changes ----------------------- * We are now using the GNATS system to track bug reports for Kerberos V5. It is therefore helpful for people to use the krb5-send-pr program when reporting bugs. The old interface of sending mail to email@example.com will still work; however, bug reports sent in this fashion may experience a delay in being processed. * The default keytab name has changed from /etc/v5srvtab to /etc/krb5.keytab. * login.krb5 no longer defaults to getting krb4 tickets. * The Windows (win16) DLL, LIBKRB5.DLL, has been renamed to KRB5_16.DLL. This change was necessary to distinguish it from the win32 version, which will be named KRB5_32.DLL. Note that the GSSAPI.DLL file has not been renamed, because this name was specified in a draft standard for the Windows 16 GSSAPI bindings. (The 32-bit version of the GSSAPI DLL will be named GSSAPI32.DLL.) * The directory structure used for installations has changed. In particular, files previously located in $prefix/lib/krb5kdc are now normally located in $sysconfdir/krb5kdc. With the normal configure options, this means the KDC database goes in /usr/local/var/krb5kdc by default. If you wish to have the old behavior, then you would use a configure line like the following: configure --prefix=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/usr/local/lib * kshd has been modified to accept krb4 encrypted rcp connections; for this to work, the v4rcp program must be in the bin directory. * The gssrpc library has symbol collisions with the rpc library in some of the libcs in certain operating systems without shared libraries, notably some ports of NetBSD and MkLinux. For those platforms which have rpc in libc and also contain NIS in libc, compiling with static libraries will not work because of this conflict. NetBSD users can either upgrade to the current tree, which includes shared libraries for more ports, choose not to build kadmind or kadmin, or recompile NetBSD without NIS support. MkLinux users must either recompile without NIS or not build the administration system.
