GSoC project proposal: Implement the Negotiate and Kerberos SSPs
based on GSSAPI

after I spent my last two summers toying with the NTLM SSP, I'm considering to
implement Negotiate and Kerberos this time.
As we've discussed on WineConf, there's more than one way to do this. My toy
idea is to not implement the ASN.1 stuff myself but instead make use of
GSSAPI for this. (With the added bonus that when using Heimdal GSSAPI, we
should be able to do NTLM via GSSAPI, too, so Negotiate can actually
negotiate between Kerberos and NTLM).
I'm not 100% sure that this approach will work, but then again, if I got and
write the proof of concept now, I won't have much to do during the summer.
Should using GSSAPI not work for us for whatever reason, I think it should be
well within the GSoC timeframe to bite the bullet and cobble together an
ASN.1 parser for Negotiate, handle negotiation in Wine and use libkrb5 for
Kerberos. Dan Kegel seemed to prefer this approach, anyway.
In any case I would like to keep the NTLM provider using ntlm_auth in as a
What do you think?
