Subject RE: Status of draft-ietf-kitten-kerb-token-preauth-01

Thanks for asking. Well, it's a long story and still a long term effort. Our side has finished
the prototype implementation of the new mechanism for the MIT KDC, and in Kerby we wish to
provide the reference implementation. The background is, we're working on a workable solution
targeted for Hadoop ecosystem and Kerby (before Haox) is part of the effort for the Java client
side (as Hadoop is also Java). We had some initial requirements and use cases, but they're
far enough for the Kerberos Consortium to push it in the first priority. You see, pushing
something isn't easy, even we're working so hard. On the other hand, the stack (Kerberos/Java/Hadoop)
is so deep and the involved aspects/parties are so many. So bet we won't be so lucky to put
it in the plate in some term soon.
