AUTH - javax.security.auth, javax.security.auth.callback, javax.security.auth.kerberos, javax.security.auth.login, javax.security.auth.spi, javax.security.auth.x500, javax.security.sasl and org.ietf.jgss.
Component is temporarily included into SECURITY module.
The current codes cover J2SE 1.4.2 API
Current code is mostly compliant with J2SE 1.5 specification. It should be updated to reflect new Java 5.0 enhancements (e.g. generics, enums) when harmony has a 1.5 compatible VM
Below are some details about what's available, missing and in progress
This component contains implementation of public API, internal code and unit tests. Most of public 1.5 classes are implemented and tested.Public API for javax.security.auth.kerberos package includes only stub implementation.
The code contains a number of TODO's such as:
- switch to generics and/or enums
- use more efficient API introduced in 1.5
- implement optional features
- stub implementation
There are only two NT and UNIX login modules provided as examples.
There is no SASL providers implemented in Harmony.
The default GSSManager and Kerberos V5 mechanism implementations are not provided.
