Generic Security Service (GSS) is an implementation of the Generic Security Service API (GSSAPI). It is used by network applications to provide security services, such as authenticating SMTP/IMAP, via the GSSAPI SASL mechanism. It consists of a library and a manual, and a Kerberos 5 mechanism that supports mutual authentication and the DES and 3DES ciphers.

Release Notes: Numerous bugfixes and enhancements.
Release Notes: This release adds a Gnulib file update.
Release Notes: A Kinyarwanda translation has been added. The email@example.com mailing list is now mentioned in the documentation. The license template in files was updated with the new FSF address. The gss_release_oid API was removed.
Release Notes: Libtool's -export-symbols-regex is now used to only export official APIs. Documentation improvements (for example, the API manual is available in DevHelp format).
Release Notes: gss_import_name and gss_duplicate_name no longer clone the OID, to avoid memory leaks. This release fixes handling of sequence numbers in gss_accept_sec_context for servers, a crash in gss_accept_sec_context for NULL values of ret_flags, and other memory leaks. It syncs with the new Shishi 0.0.18 API.
