WebAuth is a cookie-based web authentication system built on top of
Kerberos.  It relies on a central authentication server that handles all
user authentication for a domain and creates user authentication
credentials for any web server that needs strong authentication.
This package contains the Perl modules that support the WebLogin server,
which handles user authentication and the establishment of initial
authentication credentials.

webauth (4.1.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Add Breaks of libwebkdc-perl and webauth-weblogin << 4.0.0 to
libwebauth-perl and of webauth-weblogin << 4.0.0 to libwebkdc-perl.
The API of the Perl modules changed in 4.0.0.  Thanks, Dameon Wagner.
(Closes: #691878)

webauth (4.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (no Apache 2.4 support yet; that's next).
- Fix webauth_user_info bug in interpreting login history timestamps.
- Fix login history timestamp handling in sample confirm template.
- Suppress history and token rights in sample confirm template when
those data elements are empty.  (Closes: #664735)
- Add explicit HTML filters to all sample template variable
interpolations as an additional security measure.
- Update the mod_webkdc manual for changes in 4.1.0.
* If Apache is running and has the module loaded, restart Apache on
configure of libapache2-webauth or libapache2-webkdc.
* Remove the conditional around the postinst actions for
libapache2-webauth and libapache2-webkdc and just always configure the
package.  This is at least arguably more correct for the various abort
cases, is simpler, and shouldn't hurt.

webauth (4.1.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
- New mod_webkdc WebKdcUserInfoTimeout option to set a network timeout
for user information service queries.  The new default is 30
- New mod_webkdc WebKdcUserInfoIgnoreFail error to allow users to
authenticate with password and use pre-existing single sign-on
cookies even if the user information service is down.  Be aware that
this can allow bypassing a centrally-mandated multifactor
- Use remctl_set_ccache instead of setting KRB5CCNAME when available
to avoid memory leaks on calling the user information service and to
not leak settings across threads.
- Fix WebLogin error handling when the password field is left blank.
- Fix WebLogin error handling of empty usernames.
- Drop library support for base64-encoded token attributes (which was
never used by WebAuth).
- Drop webauth_info_{build,version} library APIs.
- Document Apache/Tomcat security interaction around URL parsing in
the mod_webauth manual.  This affects any Apache security mechanism
used in conjunction with Tomcat.
* Bump libremctl-dev build dependency to >= 3.1 for consistent builds.
* Add Build-Depends-Package to the symbols file for better dependency
* Update standards version to 3.9.3 (no changes required).
2011-12-02 - Russ Allbery <>
webauth (4.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
- Fix setting of the REMOTE_USER preference cookie in WebLogin.
- Ignore undefined cookies in WebLogin to reduce error logs.
- Document factor codes in the mod_webauth manual.
* Remove ${shlibs:Depends} from libwebauth-dev dependencies to remove a
warning.  This package won't contain compiled binaries.
2011-09-23 - Russ Allbery <>
webauth (4.0.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
- Change user information service and WebKDC to WebLogin protocols for
conveying suspicious login information to use the IP address as the
CDATA and put the hostname in an attribute.
- Display suspicious logins in WebLogin, forcing a confirmation page.
- Log the return URL of authentication requests to the WebKDC.
- Reduce mod_webauth log level when retrieving credentials.
2011-09-03 - Russ Allbery <>
webauth (4.0.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix a variety of uninitialized variables and memory leaks in the
libwebauth library and the test suite.  Thanks, Christoph Egger and
Aaron M. Ucko.  (Closes: #640259)
* Don't attempt to chown files in libwebkdc-perl when doing a
binary-only build.  Thanks, Aaron M. Ucko.  (Closes: #640268)
