xref: /openssh-portable/TODO (revision 87f08be0)
1Documentation:
2
3- Update the docs
4  - Update README
5  - Update INSTALL
6  - Merge INSTALL & README.privsep
7
8- Install FAQ?
9
10- General FAQ on S/Key, TIS, RSA, RSA2, DSA, etc and suggestions on when it
11  would be best to use them.
12
13- Create a Documentation/ directory?
14
15Programming:
16
17- Grep for 'XXX' comments and fix
18
19- Link order is incorrect for some systems using Kerberos 4 and AFS. Result
20  is multiple inclusion of DES symbols. Holger Trapp
21  <holger.trapp@hrz.tu-chemnitz.de> reports that changing the configure
22  generated link order from:
23	-lresolv -lkrb -lz -lnsl  -lutil -lkafs -lkrb -ldes -lcrypto
24  to:
25	-lresolv -lkrb -lz -lnsl  -lutil -lcrypto -lkafs -lkrb -ldes
26  fixing the problem.
27
28- Write a test program that calls stat() to search for EGD/PRNGd socket
29  rather than use the (non-portable) "test -S".
30
31- More platforms for for setproctitle() emulation (testing needed)
32
33- Improve PAM ChallengeResponseAuthentication
34 - Informational messages
35 - Use different PAM service name for kbdint vs regular auth (suggest from
36   Solar Designer)
37 - Ability to select which ChallengeResponseAuthentications may be used
38   and order to try them in e.g. "ChallengeResponseAuthentication pam"
39
40- Complete Tru64 SIA support
41 - It looks like we could merge it into the password auth code to cut down
42   on diff size. Maybe PAM password auth too?
43
44- Finish integrating kernel-level auditing code for IRIX and SOLARIS

46
47- 64-bit builds on HP-UX 11.X (stevesk@pobox.com):
48  - utmp/wtmp get corrupted (something in loginrec?)
49  - can't build with PAM (no 64-bit libpam yet)
50
51Clean up configure/makefiles:
52- Clean up configure.ac - There are a few double #defined variables
53  left to do.  HAVE_LOGIN is one of them.  Consider NOT looking for
54  information in wtmpx or utmpx or any of that stuff if it's not detected
55  from the start
56
57- Replace the whole u_intXX_t evilness in acconfig.h with something better???
58 - Do it in configure.ac
59
60- Consider splitting the u_intXX_t test for sys/bitype.h  into separate test
61  to allow people to (right/wrongfully) link against Bind directly.
62
63- Consider splitting configure.ac into separate files which do logically
64  similar tests. E.g move all the type detection stuff into one file,
65  entropy related stuff into another.
66
67Packaging:
68- HP-UX: Provide DEPOT package scripts.

71PrivSep Issues:
72- PAM
73  + See above PAM notes
74- AIX
75  + usrinfo() does not set TTY, but only required for legacy systems.  Works
76    with PrivSep.
77- OSF
78  + SIA is broken
79- Cygwin
80  + Privsep for Pre-auth only (no fd passing)
