Description Tim Burke 2005-06-10 18:48:25 UTC
Keyring support in U2 is a big ticket item for MSDW.  There's a separate
bugzilla tracking the kernel side, bug #130914.  There's also a glibc related
item, bug #160089.

Here's DavidH's notes on whats needed:

(2) Extra tools

	The keyctl and request-key tools need including in the distribution,
	along with the /etc/request-key.conf configuration file, the
	libkeyutil library and manual pages.


Currently its unclear which package this should go into. Probably a new one.
Until that gets sorted out, throwing it onto the distribution package.

Comment 2 David Howells 2005-06-13 09:37:32 UTC
There are two things: 
 (1) Only i386/ppc/ppc64 archs are supported by the userspace tools. This can 
     be dealt with by glibc providing syscall support for all requisite archs 
     or we'll have to extend the libkeyutil library. 
 (2) I haven't actually written any manual pages yet. I have most of the 
     userspace C interface docs in the form of a text file 
     (Documentation/keys.txt in the kernel sources), but none of the utility 
     manual pages. 
Beyond that, it's just a matter of packaging.
