Please send comments to the krbdev list. We plan for the final release
to occur in a couple of weeks. The README file contains a more
extensive list of changes.
Major changes in 1.15
* Add support to kadmin for remote extraction of current keys without
changing them (requires a special kadmin permission that is excluded
from the wildcard permission), with the exception of highly
* Add a lockdown_keys principal attribute to prevent retrieval of the
principal's keys (old or new) via the kadmin protocol. In newly
created databases, this attribute is set on the krbtgt and kadmin
* Restore recursive dump capability for DB2 back end, so sites can
more easily recover from database corruption resulting from power
* Add DNS auto-discovery of KDC and kpasswd servers from URI records,
in addition to SRV records. URI records can convey TCP and UDP
servers and master KDC status in a single DNS lookup, and can also
point to HTTPS proxy servers.
* Add support for password history to the LDAP back end.
* Add support for principal renaming to the LDAP back end.
* Use the getrandom system call on supported Linux kernels to avoid
blocking problems when getting entropy from the operating system.
* In the PKINIT client, use the correct DigestInfo encoding for PKCS
#1 signatures, so that some especially strict smart cards will work.
* Clean up numerous compilation warnings.
* Remove various infrequently built modules, including some preauth
modules that were not built by default.
* Add support for building with OpenSSL 1.1.
* Use SHA-256 instead of MD5 for (non-cryptographic) hashing of
authenticators in the replay cache. This helps sites that must
build with FIPS 140 conformant libraries that lack MD5.
* Add support for the AES-SHA2 enctypes, which allows sites to conform
to Suite B crypto requirements.
