Python-GSSAPI: Python bindings for GSSAPI¶
Python-GSSAPI provides Python bindings for the GSSAPI C bindings as defined by RFC 2744, as well as several extensions.
The package is organized into two parts: a high-level API and a low-level API.
The high-level API resides in
gssapi, and presents an object-oriented
API around GSSAPI.
The other part of Python-GSSAPI is the low-level API, which resides in
gssapi.raw. The low-level API provides thin wrappers around the
corresponding C functions. The high-level API makes use of the low-level API
to access underlying GSSAPI functionality. Additionally certain extensions
are currently only available from the low-level API.
