Kerberos Version 5, Release 1.5.1 Release Notes The MIT Kerberos Team Unpacking the Source Distribution --------------------------------- The source distribution of Kerberos 5 comes in a gzipped tarfile, krb5-1.5.1.tar.gz. Instructions on how to extract the entire distribution follow. If you have the GNU tar program and gzip installed, you can simply do: gtar zxpf krb5-1.5.1.tar.gz If you don't have GNU tar, you will need to get the FSF gzip distribution and use gzcat: gzcat krb5-1.5.1.tar.gz | tar xpf - Both of these methods will extract the sources into krb5-1.5.1/src and the documentation into krb5-1.5.1/doc. Building and Installing Kerberos 5 ---------------------------------- The first file you should look at is doc/install-guide.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. This is also available as an HTML file, install.html. 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. These files are also available as HTML files. If you are attempting to build under Windows, please see the src/windows/README file. Note that this release might not build under Windows currently. 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 email@example.com. You may view bug reports by visiting http://krbdev.mit.edu/rt/ and logging in as "guest" with password "guest". Major changes in 1.5.1 ---------------------- The only significant change in krb5-1.5.1 is to fix the security vulnerabilities decribed in MITKRB5-SA-2006-001, which are local privilege escalation vulnerabilities in applications running on Linux and AIX. krb5-1.5.1 changes by ticket ID ------------------------------- Listed below are the RT tickets of bugs fixed in krb5-1.5.1. Please see http://krbdev.mit.edu/rt/NoAuth/krb5-1.5/fixed-1.5.1.html for a current listing with links to the complete tickets. 3904 fix uninitialized vars 3956 gssapi compilation errors on Windows 3971 broken configure test for dlopen 3998 Document add_entry in ktutil man page 4012 reverse test for copy_oid_set in lib/gssapi/krb5/indicate_mechs.c 4036 reject configure option for static libraries 4037 respect LDFLAGS in NetBSD build 4063 gss mech glue implementation should validate opaque pointer types 4088 gss_import_name can fail to call gssint_initialize_library() 4125 fix MITKRB5-SA-2006-001: multiple local privilege escalation vulnerabilities 4137 ksu spuriously fails when exiting shell when ksu-ing to non-root 4168 clean up mkrel patchlevel.h editing etc. Major changes in 1.5 -------------------- Kerberos 5 Release 1.5 includes many significant changes to the Kerberos build system, to GSS-API, and to the Kerberos KDC and administration system. These changes build up infrastructure as part of our efforts to make Kerberos more extensible and flexible. While we are confident that these changes will improve Kerberos in the long run, significant code restructuring may introduce portability problems or change behavior in ways that break applications. It is always important to test a new version of critical security software like Kerberos before deploying it in your environment to confirm that the new version meets your environment's requirements. Because of the significant restructuring, it is more important than usual to perform this testing and to report problems you find. Highlights of major changes include: * KDB abstraction layer, donated by Novell. * plug-in architecture, allowing for extension modules to be loaded at run-time. * multi-mechanism GSS-API implementation ("mechglue"), donated by Sun Microsystems * Simple and Protected GSS-API negotiation mechanism ("SPNEGO") implementation, donated by Sun Microsystems * Per-directory ChangeLog files have been deleted. Releases now include auto-generated revision history logs in the combined file doc/CHANGES. Changes by ticket ID -------------------- Listed below are the RT tickets of bugs fixed in krb5-1.5.
