> As discussed in the community, we're going to create a dedicated Kerberos project based
on Haox project codebase ( incorporating and consolidating
the existing Kerberos functionalities in ApacheDS. The long term goal is to establish a first
class Kerberos implementation in Java for the Apache world targeting today's environments
in cloud, Hadoop and mobile. It will provides rich, intuitive and interoperable library and
facilities that integrate multiple authentication mechanisms including PKI, OTP and token
(OAuth) as desired in above mentioned modern environments.It will also implement a KDC server
that can integrate various identity back ends including simple memory database, SQL database
and LDAP server by dynamic plugin and loading approach, which allows it to be utilized in
various contexts and scenarios. 
> This serves as the master JIRA to track all the related tasks for the new sub project.
With the fundamental aspects and tasks resolved, we would go to next phase targeting an Apache
TLP project, as we agreed in the discussion.
