Subject [jira] Created: (DIRKERBEROS-16) Lift KDC configuration off file system
Date Tue, 07 Dec 2004 01:34:08 GMT
Lift KDC configuration off file system
--------------------------------------

         Key: DIRKERBEROS-16
         URL: http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRKERBEROS-16
     Project: Kerberos
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Key Distribution Center, Configuration Manager, Backing Store  
    Reporter: Enrique Rodriguez
 Assigned to: Enrique Rodriguez 
    Priority: Minor


Lift KDC configuration off of the file system, into the Eve backing store DIT.  Then, upon
startup, if there is no kerberos.properties file specified, we will look to the system partition,
under ou=kerberos,ou=system, where we will find a subtree containing the system configuration
and configuration for the realms that this KDC is authoritative for.  This subtree will be
the backing store for a custom Preferences implementation that is then constructor-injected
into the KDC for use during regular operation.

For example, the system partition subtree dc=example,dc=com,ou=kerberos,ou=system could bootstrap
the realm at ou=people,dc=example,dc=com.  This will allow us to support unlimited realms
and leverage future Eve mechanisms for authorization and replication.
