This Python package is a high-level wrapper for Kerberos (GSSAPI) operations. The goal is to avoid having to build a module that wraps the entire Kerberos.framework, and instead offer a limited set of functions that do what is needed for client/server Kerberos authentication based on <>. Much of the C-code here is adapted from Apache's mod_auth_kerb-5.0rc7. This package contains the Python 2.x module.

    2016-01-18 - Matthias Klose <> pykerberos (1.1.5-2build1) xenial; urgency=medium * No-change rebuild to drop python3.4 support.

    2015-08-24 - Guido Günther <> pykerberos (1.1.5-2) unstable; urgency=medium * [d3133b6] Set verify=True in docs too. This makes the docs consistent with the default behaviour of the function. * [792f3b6] Make verify option really optional. So far it correctly defaulted to true but couldn't be skipped.

    2015-08-22 - Guido Günther <> pykerberos (1.1.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium * [17e7132] Add KDC authenticity verification support (CVE-2015-3206) Obtained from upstream, ignoring white-space changes, URL: basically taken verbatim from the Squeeze LTS version prepared by Mike Gabriel (Closes: #796195)

    2014-06-12 - Thomas Goirand <> pykerberos (1.1.5-0.1) unstable; urgency=medium * Non-maintainer upload. * New upstream release (Closes: #751365). * Added a debian/gbp.conf. * Added extend-diff-ignore = "^[^/]*[.]egg-info/" in debian/source/options. * Added python3 support. * Removed useless debian/pyversions and debian/pycompat. * Canonical VCS URLs. * Added a watch file. * debian/copyright using parseable format 1.0. * Added a homepage field. * Drops conflicts + replaces, as this is a very old version that had the issue and even Wheezy should be unaffected now. * Also cleans the build folder to allow double builds. * Disabled some unused dh target to speed-up the build. * Adds ln -s kerberos.cpython-32mu-*.so to in Python 3 for Wheezy, as otherwise it's impossible to import the module.

    2014-01-13 - Dr. Torge Szczepanek <> pykerberos (1.1+svn10616-2) unstable; urgency=low [ Dr. Torge Szczepanek ] * [283e15c] Switch to dpkg-source 3.0 (quilt) format * upload to unstable * Thanks to Guido Günther providing assistance on adoption [ Guido Günther ] * [c040b5a] Add Torge to uploaders * [73df52a] Bump standards version

    2013-11-02 - Guido Günther <> pykerberos (1.1+svn10616-1) unstable; urgency=low * [ef7f26c] New upstream version 1.1+svn10616 * [aa395ca] Remove article form package description to make lintian happy. * [d74731c] Bump standards version

    2010-01-05 - Guido Günther <> pykerberos (1.1+svn4895-1) unstable; urgency=low * [d6e470d] fix typo in package description (Closes: #520276) - thanks to Era Eriksson * [9667199] Imported Upstream version 1.1+svn4895 * [c253ce0] Set maintainer to Calendarserver Maintainers * [b81ee0b] Bump standards version * Many thanks to Rahul Amaram for preparing this

    2008-09-19 - Guido Guenther <> pykerberos (1.1-1) experimental; urgency=low * [21a4f56] Imported Upstream version 1.1 * [62890cd] remove all patches - applied upstream * [ac87947] disable patchsys quilt
