      Description

      Java GSS is the java implementation of GSS-API as per RFC 2853, with a
      java implementation of Kerberos.

      Currently Java GSS can only leverage Java Kerberos. There is interest
      that Java Kerberos applications should be able to use the native Kerberos
      implementations. We cannot interface to native Kerberos library, the
      Kerberos API is not public. However GSS-API is public. We can bridge
      Java GSS-API to Native GSS-API, and hence allow java applications to
      leverage native Kerberos implementation.

      We need to add a JNI provider that would interface to the native
      GSS-API using the native GSS library.

      Currently this scope of this RFE is for providing native GSS support
      for Solaris only.
