Kerberos/GSSAPI authentication for crossbar?

#1

Hi Tobias,

We are planning to use crossbar in a NASA enterprise
application, and this will require the use of Kerberos
authentication (Active Directory / GSSAPI).

We are looking into using the python-gssapi package:
https://github.com/pythongssapi/python-gssapi
It appears to be at least a starting point.

Creating a server-side authenticator that uses one of
the existing crossbar authentication interfaces will
probably be non-trivial -- I'm guessing the crossbar
"ticket-based" auth mechanism would be the closest
fit.

Has anyone done any work in this area?

Thanks,
Steve
