Title : Generic Security Service API Version 2: Java Bindings Update
Authors : Mayank D. Upadhyay
Filename : draft-ietf-kitten-rfc5653bis-04.txt
Pages : 96
Date : 2016-12-05
The Generic Security Services Application Program Interface (GSS-API)
offers application programmers uniform access to security services
atop a variety of underlying cryptographic mechanisms. This document
updates the Java bindings for the GSS-API that are specified in
"Generic Security Service API Version 2 : Java Bindings Update" (RFC
5653). This document obsoletes RFC 5653 by adding a new output token
field to the GSSException class so that when the initSecContext or
acceptSecContext methods of the GSSContext class fails it has a
chance to emit an error token which can be sent to the peer for
debugging or informational purpose. The stream-based GSSContext
methods are also removed in this version.
The GSS-API is described at a language-independent conceptual level
in "Generic Security Service Application Program Interface Version 2,
Update 1" (RFC 2743). The GSS-API allows a caller application to
authenticate a principal identity, to delegate rights to a peer, and
to apply security services such as confidentiality and integrity on a
per-message basis. Examples of security mechanisms defined for GSS-
API are "The Simple Public-Key GSS-API Mechanism" (RFC 2025) and "The
Kerberos Version 5 Generic Security Service Application Program
Interface (GSS-API) Mechanism: Version 2" (RFC 4121).

With that, I think we can conclude that this document has WG
consensus and proceed to move it forward. That should leave
some room for us to pick up some new work, which is quite exciting!
