[RHEL4] Keyring support - os level utilities / manpage / helper libs
Last modified: 2010-10-21 23:04:13 EDT
Keyring support in U2 is a big ticket item for MSDW. There's a separate
bugzilla tracking the kernel side, bug #130914. There's also a glibc related
item, bug #160089.
Here's DavidH's notes on whats needed:
(2) Extra tools
The keyctl and request-key tools need including in the distribution,
along with the /etc/request-key.conf configuration file, the
libkeyutil library and manual pages.
Currently its unclear which package this should go into. Probably a new one.
Until that gets sorted out, throwing it onto the distribution package.
There are two things:
(1) Only i386/ppc/ppc64 archs are supported by the userspace tools. This can
be dealt with by glibc providing syscall support for all requisite archs
or we'll have to extend the libkeyutil library.
(2) I haven't actually written any manual pages yet. I have most of the
userspace C interface docs in the form of a text file
(Documentation/keys.txt in the kernel sources), but none of the utility
Beyond that, it's just a matter of packaging.
