pam-krb5 4.3

This release incorporates optional support for Flexible Authentication Secure Tunneling (FAST), which is a mechanism for protecting the exchange with the KDC using an existing ticket cache. This support was contributed by Sam Hartman. If the fast_ccache option is set and there is a valid Kerberos ticket in the cache it points to, and if both the local Kerberos libraries and the KDC support FAST, that ticket will be used to protect the authentication exchange. Currently, this requires MIT Kerberos 1.7 or later.

Also in this release are more minor bug fixes for the alt_auth_map configuration parsing and building on Solaris with the native compiler.

You can get the latest release from the pam-krb5 distribution page.
