SEC18 — Regarding Principal Authenticator in security/99-12-02

  • Key: SEC18-1
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3262
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Hewlett-Packard ( Jan Pachl)
  • Summary:

    As I recall, two operations from Principal Authenticator were added to
    the Vault interface at one point a year or so ago, with the idea that the
    Principal Authenticator would simply pass those calls through to Vault,
    rather than implementing them directly. But paragraph [971] still says
    that Principal Authenticator may be used by Vault. It's now the other way
    round: P.A. uses Vault.

    In fact, is Principal Authenticator still one of the replaceable
    objects? Since P.A. uses Vault to do its work, it should be enough to
    make Vault replaceable. It still says in paragraphs [874], [974] and
    [1704] that P.A. is replaceable.
