Library for Kerberos-authenticated command execution

remctl is a client/server protocol for executing specific commands on a remote system with Kerberos authentication. The allowable commands must be listed in a server configuration file, and the executable run on the server may be mapped to any command name. Each command is also associated with an ACL containing a list of Kerberos principals authorized to run that command.

This package contains the client libraries linked against MIT Kerberos.

Package version:3.2-4


remctl (2.11-1) unstable; urgency=low

  remctl now has an IANA-assigned port number (4373).  The inetd.conf
  entry for remctl-server will not be changed if an entry already exists,
  but you may want to change port 4444 to 4373 once all your clients have
  been upgraded.

  The remctl client (command-line or library) will attempt to connect to
  4373 by default and fall back to 4444 if that fail

  * Cherry-pick upstream fix to close a file descriptor leak in remctld
    when checking access against ACL files.

remctl (3.2-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Cherry-pick upstream fix to flags passed to open() when creating
    sentinel files in the test suite.  Hopefully fixes FTBFS on Hurd.



                       User-Visible remctl Changes

remctl 3.2 (2012-06-19)

    Add new summary option to the remctld configuration.  If remctld
    receives a command of "help" with no arguments and no command by that
    name has been defined, the server will look through the configuration
    for any command with a summary option set, a subcommand of ALL, and
    which the user would have been
