AFS & Kerberos Best Practices 2006 Presentation
The University of Michigan
uses a software package named filedrawers,
to run a web-based file manager service named mfile to manage
AFS directories. We're able to accomplish this by
working with the mod_waklog apache module.
Mod_waklog is developed in C. Mod_waklog acquires AFS
credentials of the logged in user and allows Apache to run
as that user. U-M uses
CoSign to obtain the user's Kerberos credentials. See
the readme for a more technical
overview of how mod_waklog works.
The mod_waklog source code is available via git under an
open source license.
