Shishi is an implementation of the kerberos v5 network authentication
Shishi can be used to authenticate users in distributed systems.
Shishi contains a library ('libshishi') that can be used by
application developers to add support for kerberos v5.  Shishi
contains a command line utility ('shishi') that is used by users to
acquire and manage tickets (and more).  The server side, a Key
Distribution Center, is implemented by 'shishid'.  Of course, a
manual documenting usage aspects as well as the programming API is
Shishi currently supports AS/TGS exchanges for acquiring tickets, the
AP exchange for performing client and server authentication, and
SAFE/PRIV for integrity/privacy protected application data exchanges.
Shishi is internationalized; error and status messages can be
translated into the users' language; user name and passwords can be
converted into any available character set (normally including
ISO-8859-1 and UTF-8) and also be processed using an experimental
Stringprep profile.
Most, if not all, of the widely used encryption and checksum types
are supported, such as ARCFOUR, 3DES, AES and HMAC-SHA1.
This package includes a few command line tools:
shishi -- Acquire and manage Kerberos tickets.
keytab2shishi -- Convert MIT/Heimdal /etc/krb5.keytab's to Shishi format.
ccache2shishi -- Convert MIT/Heimdal user ticket files to Shishi format.
