I've used Centrify's OpenSSH and related tools for genuine single-sign-in
for Linux servers and Windows clients. They provided updated Putty and
OpenSSH servers with GSSAPI for RHEL 3, RHEL 4 and RHEL 5 servers. Good,
useful stuff, especially with the Active Directory integration for mixed

Have you folks seen any BSM issues? I'd expect your clients who've
activated this to be some of the best test beds to verify its effectiveness.

Leo, did you guys ever straighten out the "compile OpenSSH for the
particular Linux distribution, don't assume OpenSSH compiled on older
distributions will operate on the most recent release" issue? You used to
publish only the RHEL 3 RPM's for RHEL based Linux, and I'm the one who
sent the "xauth moved since then, you need to recompile on RHEL 5 or edit
sshd_config" workaround.
