WebAuth 3.4.2 Announcement

The ITS WebAuth team is pleased to announce Stanford WebAuth 3.4.2. This is primarily a portability release that fixes some problems on Red Hat systems and with Heimdal builds.

For documentation and downloads of WebAuth 3.4.2, see:


We have not yet updated the versions of the binary packages for Solaris.

The user-visible changes in this release are:

  • Don't try to build the modules with -z defs. If it actually works, it breaks the build, since Apache modules refer to symbols that are only in httpd, not in any linked library.

  • Transform -pthread or -pthreads in the Kerberos compiler flags into something that apxs can handle. This is needed for some builds of Heimdal.

  • Added another fix for finding et/com_err.h on Red Hat, this time for mod_webauthldap.

  • Search for apxs2 in the path before apxs. WebAuth requires Apache 2.x, so if apxs2 is available, it's more likely the right thing to use than apxs. This change allows the WebAuth build to find apxs properly on Debian without extra configure flags.

  • Documented the Kerberos ticket encoding for WebAuth tokens in the protocol specification.
