Hi All,I see that you might be looking for assistance with your GSS implementation ? I have worked a lot with GSS in the past (Java JNI wrapper on a proprietary C impl etc.) and could perhaps be able to help out. Can you give me an indication of what you wish to achieve in this direction and some initial pointers (have got the manual, Javadocs etc.).
Yes, we are always looking for volunteers, and a free Java GSS implementation is something we do need.
We are most interested in an implementation of Kerberos that is compatible with the version shipped with Sun's Java runtime, to help complete GNU's free Java offering. As such, something that can be used with GNU Classpath (http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath) or that could be included directly into Classpath would be best. My guess is that the easiest way to do that is to wrap a free C implementation (there are a few) with Java classes, but a pure Java implementation is always interesting, too.
If there's a more interesting protocol than Kerberos, I don't mind seeing that used instead.
A good place to get started is to take a look at Classpath and one of the free JVMs that use it (for simplicity, I'd suggest jamvm first: http://jamvm.sf.net/), and also Jessie, a free Java SSL implementation (http://jessie.nongnu.org/).
