Configure the KDC to support SPAKE
(draft-ietf-kitten-krb-spake-preauth-05), which strengthens Kerberos
using elliptic curve cryptography for its handshake.
May be we can say a bit more:
- Kerberos clients can now use SPAKE to strengthen their handshake with
a FreeIPA KDC based on elliptic curve cryptography. See IETF draft
draft-ietf-kitten-krb-spake-preauth-05 and relevant portions of
krb5.conf(5) and kdc.conf(5) for details. SPAKE is enabled
for new IPA servers and clients by default.
I'd also add a note around translation improvements:
- Thanks to our translation volunteers, FreeIPA 4.6.90.pre2 sees a
major update for Chinese, French, Russian, and Ukrainian languages.
