Problem description

  • Resolved BUG233226 (CASA Authtoken Client library needs to un-initialize itself when unloaded).
  • Changed the files included in the client RPM to allow applications to more easily dynamically link our libraries without neededing to deal with library version changes.
  • Resolved BUG234411. The issue involved the client crashing when receiving a response from an ATS with a successful status but no payload.
  • Resolved BUG232243. The issue involved clearing memory used by the client library to hold tokens since the tokens contain security sensitive data.
  • Resolved BUG225118.
  • Made changes to issues found during self-code review.
  • FateID 301736 : Submit CASA_auth_token_client to sled10-sp1
  • Separated the non-java project into client and server projects in order to better support distributions that target desktops. From now on, this changes file will only contain information that applies to the client project.
  • Finished the changes to enable client/ATS communications over SSL.
  • Made changes to enable client/ats communication over SSL. (Not quite done with this yet).
  • Updated the make system to allow Windows builds to be made from the command line using Cygwin.

  • Brought up to date the README and TODO files.

  • Add the CASA build check as dependency in spec file
  • Ported the client to Linux and created the CASA_auth_token_client package.

  • Added rc script for Validate AuthToken Service.
  • Created the Validate AuthToken Service and made all of the necessary changes to allow it to be consumed by the AuthTokenValidate library.
  • Also made necessary spec file changes to support our configuration.
  • Created client/server IPC libraries that will be utilized by libcasa_s_authtoken to communicate with the Java Validate AuthToken Service (yet to be created) over DOMAIN sockets. The service will utilize the libraries via JNI to be able to process requests sent using DOMAIN sockets.
  • Fixed CASA_auth_token_devel build requirement for CASA_auth_token_svc
  • This file has been created for CASA_auth_token_native project for the first time
