This document describes an extensibility mechanism for the Kerberos
v5 protocol when used over TCP transports.
Working Group Summary
This document represents the consensus of the Kerberos Working
Group. There was a concern raised by at least one person that this
document should not be advanced until there was at least one
extension that intended to use it. The consensus of the WG was that
the document was sufficiently mature to be a proposed standard.
At least one implementor has indicated an intent to implement both
this extension mechanism and an extension which makes use of it.
Others have indicated no current plans to do so, but this is not
surprising given the (current) lack of standards-track extensions
which make use of this mechanism.
The document shepherd for this document was Jeffrey Hutzelman.
The responsible Area Director was Sam Hartman
