WebAuth 3.5.4

It's been quite a while since the last WebAuth release (September of last year), and a variety of small fixes had accumulated. I finished resolving some long-standing minor cookie handling issues in WebLogin and added code to display the true final destination when authenticating for a Shibboleth IdP, and that seemed like a good excuse for a new release. Also in this release are configuration fixes for mod_webauthldap, better configure handling with multiple Kerberos libraries installed, and better Heimdal support.

The next release, 3.6.0, will have multi-realm support and the remaining code that we need for guest account handling. I'll need to write quite a bit of additional documentation for that, since the details of cross-realm and multi-realm support are tricky.

You can get the latest release from the WebAuth distribution page. (I still need to put up a regular software page for this on my own site rather than just maintaining the service page.)

How do handle guest accounts? This is something my colleagues are starting to plan and it would be useful to know what Stanford do.

We're planning on setting up a separate realm and using Shibboleth (with WebAuth as the authentication mechanism for the IdP) to do guest accounts. I'll separately send you our current proposal on the details.
