This is the gss-proxy project. The goal is to have a GSS-API proxy, with standardizable protocol and a [somewhat portable] reference client and server implementation. There are several motivations for this some of which are: - Kernel-mode GSS-API applications (CIFS, NFS, AFS, ...) need to be able to leave all complexity of GSS_Init/Accept_sec_context() out of the kernel by upcalling to a daemon that does all the dirty work. - Isolation and privilege separation for user-mode applications. For example: letting HTTP servers use but not see the keytabe entries for HTTP/* principals for accepting security contexts. - Possibly an ssh-agent-like SSH agent for GSS credentials -- a gss-agent. gss-proxy uses libverto for dealing with event loops. Note that you need to have at least one libverto event library installed (e.g. libverto-tevent).
