Re: Kerberos + PHP


It does authentication for recent PHP systems using the 4.x extension 

It was designed for MIT kerberos and I get a segfault from the verify 
function called in it from Heimdal.  I am not sure what the deal is, but 
it can't find /etc/krb5.conf for some reason I think.  Anyway, I have a 
patch against it that fixes it by using another call in Heimdal.  If you 
have that problem let me know, I will give you the patch.

Also, I have a newer version of it I have made, but not tested that 
adds/deletes users/changes passwords/adds local realms.  I am still 
testing it for a new project.
