Vintela OpenSSH project is a version of OpenSSH modified and packaged to provide default single sign-on capability for Vintela customers using the Vintela Authentication Service (VAS) and/ or Vintela Management eXtensions (VMX) products.
Vintela's version of OpenSSH defaults to authenticating users via the GSSAPI-with-MIC mechanism, and authenticating hosts with GSS-KEX. It works in conjunction with VAS, to allow secure shell single sign-on to Unix hosts that have been joined to Active Directory domains.
What's New in This Release:
· This release is primarily a bugfix release and brings the source in line with the upstream OpenSSH 4.3p2.
· It fixed problems with the user credential cache being lost when pam_vas, keyboard-interactive, and privsep were used, and public key authentication failures on Solaris.
· Improvements include faster login on systems with many VAS-enabled groups and GSSAPI auth being tried before public-key.
