This document describes the extension of the format, use and communication of authentication names in the AFS-3 protocol to allow for additional authentication mechanisms to be represented and mapped to AFS IDs, independent of the AFS usernames currently used for management of PRDB entries. The new interface provides mechanisms for adding, removing, and listing mappings, and to allow the fileserver to map an authentication name to a PTS identity.
