wallet 1.4

wallet is a secret management system that I developed at Stanford, primarily to distribute keytab management. As mentioned in an earlier post, I'm not entirely sure it has significant advantages over Vault, but it does handle Kerberos natively and we're still using it for some things, so I'm still maintaining it.

This release incorporates a bunch of improvements to the experimental support for managing keytabs for Active Directory principals, all contributed by Bill MacAllister and Dropbox. Anyone using the previous experimental Active Directory support should read through the configuration options, since quite a lot has changed (for the better).

Also fixed in this release are some stray strlcpy and strlcat references that were breaking systems that include them in libc, better krb5.conf configuration handling, better support for Perl in non-standard locations, and a bunch of updates and modernization to the build and test frameworks.

You can get the latest release from the wallet distribution page.
