• pam-krb5 4.10 released

    From Russ Allbery@21:1/5 to All on Sat Mar 20 13:40:18 2021
    I'm pleased to announce release 4.10 of pam-krb5.

    This is a small bug-fix release with a possible security fix, although I
    don't see a path to exploit the bug. But better safe than sorry.

    pam-krb5 is a Kerberos PAM module for either MIT Kerberos or Heimdal. It supports ticket refreshing by screen savers, configurable authorization handling, authentication of non-local accounts for network services,
    password changing, and password expiration, as well as all the standard expected PAM features. It works correctly with OpenSSH, even with ChallengeResponseAuthentication and PrivilegeSeparation enabled, and
    supports extensive configuration either by PAM options or in krb5.conf or
    both. PKINIT is supported with recent versions of both MIT Kerberos and Heimdal and FAST is supported with recent MIT Kerberos.

    Changes from previous release:

    When re-retrieving the authenticated principal from the current cache,
    ensure the stored principal in the authentication context is always
    either valid or NULL. Otherwise, a failure of krb5_cc_get_principal
    could result in a double free. Thanks to Michael Muehle for the

    Update to rra-c-util 9.0:

    * Check that at least one Kerberos header file was found and works.
    * Use AS_ECHO in all Autoconf macros in preference to echo.
    * Fix portability of reallocarray on NetBSD systems.
    * Stop providing a replacement for a broken snprintf.

    Update to C TAP Harness 4.7:

    * Fix warnings with GCC 10.
