Description :
Kerberos V5 is a trusted-third-party network authentication system,
which can improve your network's security by eliminating the insecure
practice of sending passwords over the network in unencrypted form.

Update Information:

This update incorporates a fix for a bug which could cause clients which attempted to contact servers using TCP to become wedge.
This update incorporates fixes for a possible remotely-triggered crash in KDCs which are configured to serve multiple realms at once (CVE-2013-1418), and another which could occur while the KDC processed certain requests using referrals (CVE-2013-1417).

* Mon Nov 18 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.11.3-13
- backport fix to not spin on a short read when reading the length of a
  response over TCP (RT#7508, #1029674)
* Fri Nov 15 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.11.3-12
- incorporate fix for a KDC NULL pointer dereference while handling referrals
  (CVE-2013-1417, #1030744)
* Tue Nov  5 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.11.3-11
- incorporate upstream patch for remote crash of KDCs which serve multiple
  realms simultaneously (RT#7756, CVE-2013-1418/CVE-2013-6800,
* Thu Oct 24 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 1.11.3-10
- add some minimal description to the top of the wrapper scripts we use
  when starting krb5kdc and kadmind to describe why they exist (tooling)
- create and own /etc/gss (#1019937)
- pull up fix for importing previously-exported credential caches in the
  gssapi library (RT# 7706, #1019420)
- backport the callback to use the libkrb5 prompter when we can't load PEM
  files for PKINIT (RT#7590, includes part of #965721/#1016690)
- extract the rest of the fix #965721/#1016690 from the changes for RT#7680
- pull up fix for not calling a kdb plugin's check-transited-path
  method before calling the library's default version, which only knows
  how to read what's in the configuration file (RT#7709, #1013664)
- configure --without-krb5-config so that we don't pull in the old default
  ccache name when we want to stop setting a default ccache name at configure-
* Fri Aug 23 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-9
- take another stab at accounting for UnversionedDocdirs for the -libs
  subpackage (spotted by ssorce)
- switch to just the snapshot of nss_wrapper we were using, since we
  no longer need to carry anything that isn't in the cwrap.org repository
* Thu Aug 15 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-8
- drop a patch we weren't not applying (build tooling)
- wrap kadmind and kpropd in scripts which check for the presence/absence
  of files which dictate particular exit codes before exec'ing the actual
  binaries, instead of trying to use ConditionPathExists in the unit files
  to accomplish that, so that we exit with failure properly when what we
  expect isn't actually in effect on the system (#800343)
* Mon Jul 29 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-7
- attempt to account for UnversionedDocdirs for the -libs subpackage
* Fri Jul 26 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-6
- tweak configuration files used during tests to try to reduce the number
  of conflicts encountered when builds for multiple arches land on the same
* Mon Jul 22 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-5
- pull up changes to allow GSSAPI modules to provide more functions
  (RT#7682, #986564/#986565)
* Fri Jul 19 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-4
- use (a bundled, for now, copy of) nss_wrapper to let us run some of the
  self-tests at build-time in more places than we could previously (#978756)
- cover inconsistencies in whether or not there's a local caching nameserver
  that's willing to answer when the build environment doesn't have a
  resolver configuration, so that nss_wrapper's faking of the local
  hostname can be complete
* Mon Jul  1 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-3
- specify dependencies on the same arch of krb5-libs by using the %{?_isa}
  suffix, to avoid dragging 32-bit libraries onto 64-bit systems (#980155)
* Thu Jun 13 2013 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> 1.11.3-2
- special-case /run/user/0, attempting to create it when resolving a
  directory cache below it fails due to ENOENT and we find that it doesn't
  already exist, either, before attempting to create the directory cache
  (maybe helping, maybe just making things more confusing for #961235)
