Project description



Change Log

1.0.90 (2012-03-22)

Be a Python extension module and can be installed by easy_install from PyPI Reformat project’s meta files in reStructuredText to provide more readable information in the PyPI project web page


Pay attention to python2.3



python-krbV allows python programs to use Kerberos 5 authentication and security. It is designed to be a thin wrapper around the krb5 C api. Familiarity with the C api will be of great help when using this module.


As you know, you can use easy_install or pip install python-krbV from PyPI. Since python-krbV is a C Python extension module, of course gcc compiler should be installed before anything goes.

$ sudo easy_install python-krbV

If you are running RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), Fedora, CentOS, or any other RHEL-based Linux distributions, you can install by yum.

$ sudo yum install python-krbV

Or, if you would like do everything manually, download the tarball, extract, and build in your ways.

$ ./
$ make
$ sudo make install
