Description Martin Kosek 2015-03-11 15:04:19 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

mod_auth_gssapi is a new module I am working on to make Negotiate authentication more streamlined.

The main feature for FreeIPA is that it will allow the use of GSS-Proxy for all functionality as it does not use direct libkrb5 calls unlike mod_auth_kerb

It is a precondition for implementing #4189

Comment 6 Brian J. Murrell 2015-08-21 11:24:08 UTC
When is this likely to hit RHEL 7?  This will close bug 1255703, but if this hitting RHEL 7 is still a long way out, I'd like to see bug 1255703 fixed in the meanwhile.
