Section Number and Name: 

Apache Configuration, the example of the configuration

Describe the issue: 

    # For Kerberos remove "AuthType basic" and insert the following:
    # AuthType Kerberos
    # KrbMethodNegotiate on
    # KrbMethodK5Passwd off
    # KrbServiceName Any
    # KrbAuthRealms EXAMPLE.COM
    # Krb5Keytab /path/to/keytab
    # KrbSaveCredentials off

Suggestions for improvement: 

The use of AuthType Kerberos implies the use of mod_auth_kerb. In Fedoras and RHEL 7, mod_auth_gssapi is now available which is a replacement of no-longer-actively-maintained mod_auth_kerb. The AuthType Kerberos should be replaced by AuthType GSSAPI and the Krb* directives with some equivalent directives of mod_auth_gssapi.

This PR references mod_auth_gssapi: https://github.com/openshift/openshift-docs/pull/903

It will merge sometime before 3.0.2 is released.
Comment 4 Jan Pazdziora 2017-10-18 04:34:32 EDT
I confirm that https://docs.openshift.com/enterprise/3.0/admin_guide/configuring_authentication.html#RequestHeaderIdentityProvider today says

    # For Kerberos
    # yum install mod_auth_gssapi
    # AuthType GSSAPI
    # GssapiCredStore keytab:/etc/httpd.keytab

Why is this bugzilla tracked with ose-2.2.z ? flag and not just marked resolved in CURRENTRELEASE?

Hi Jan,

The docs team doesn't really use flags for tracking bugs as far as I know.  I'm going to close this bug if you say it's fixed.  Thanks.
