New job

Google’s Summer of Code was again a pleasure to participate in! I’m quite pleased with the overall results and have enjoyed working on the CUPS tree. Mike, main author of CUPS, has merged my Kerberos branch into trunk a couple of days ago. It should be part of the upcoming 1.3 series. My aim is to stick around and maybe work on SPNEGO/NTLMSSP support.

As of recently I have started working part-time for SerNet. I’ll be working on random Samba bits for them, all free software. The first thing I’m working on is backporting the excellent libndr (one of the core parts of DCE/RPC) subsystem from Samba 4 to Samba 3.

The university year has also started, so my activity in free software will probably decrease a bit in a few days.


Summer of Code

I’ve finished the last few bits of my Summer of Code project. Client and server side authentication to CUPS using Kerberos work now, and that includes both the administration tools and IPP.

It’s been fun working on CUPS and now that I’m a bit more familiar with the code, I’d like to have a stab at implementing SPNEGO and NTLMSSP support as well. This should be much easier now, as I have already done the required work to support WWW-Authenticate: Negotiate, one of the prerequisites for both Kerberos and SPNEGO.

Rolf Kvinge also seems to have been successful, Mono now has a self-hosting Visual Basic.NET compiler. I’m looking forward to trying it out, once I can get my hands on a binary to compile it with…


Applications for Summer of Code

For the second time I will be participating in the Google Summer of Code. My project this year is Kerberos integration in CUPS.
