Overview

IBM Distributed Computing Environment for Windows NT (R), Version 2.2 (DCE NT V2.2), an extension of DCE for Windows NT V2.0, is a server/client package based on DCE Release 1.2.2 from The Open Group (TOG).

Major new features include:

  • Slim Client
  • Public Key Certificate Login
  • Kerberos V5 interoperability
  • Remote procedure call (RPC) code set conversion
Additionally, this program includes support for systems with multiple Network Interface Cards (NICs) and systems configured to use the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), plus performance improvements and enhanced usability.

Major components of DCE NT V2.2:

  • DCE Runtime Services (client services)
  • Slim Client
  • Cell Directory Services (CDS)
  • Security Services (SS)
  • Application Development Kit (ADK)
The DCE NT V2.2 program package also includes IBM DCE Application Development Kit and Runtime Services for Windows (TM) 95, Version 2.0, for use on Windows 95 systems in your DCE network. For DCE customers who use software servers other than DCE for Windows NT, two additional program packages are available:
  • IBM DCE Runtime Services for Windows NT, Version 2.2 -- enables Windows NT systems to become DCE clients using either the full administrative client services or the Slim Client.

  • IBM DCE Application Development Kit and Runtime Services for Windows NT, Version 2.2 -- offers components for DCE application developers along with the full administrative client services and the Slim Client.
IBM DCE Management for Tivoli Management Framework, Version 1.0, a feature for use in Tivoli environments, is included in each of the program packages in this announcement. This English-only feature is not available as a separate program.

TOG was formerly known as Open Software Foundation (OSF). OSF is still used in some technical descriptions.



Key Prerequisites

  • Computers with Intel-based processors on a TCP/IP, LAN, or WAN network and running Microsoft (TM) Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3.

  • Entrust/Entelligence 4.0 client is required for Public Key Certificate Login.

DESCRIPTION

The IBM DCE NT V2.2 programs, jointly developed by IBM and Digital (TM) Equipment Corporation, are based on DCE Release 1.2.2 and serve as upgrades for the DCE for Windows NT Version 2.0 programs, based on DCE Release 1.2.1.

New in V2.2:

  • Slim Client reduces DCE memory and disk space resource consumption on client systems. The Slim Client provides the same programming environment to RPC-based applications as the full DCE client (Runtime Services) but requires no cell administrator intervention for configuration (configurations are local only).

  • Public Key Certificate Login allows DCE users to prove their identity to the DCE authentication service using an X509v3 digital certificate and its associated public key pair, rather than a shared-secret key password. One benefit of this authentication mechanism is that, in the event of a compromise of the DCE Security Server, public key users do not have any identifying information exposed to the intruder. Users need not have either a traditional secret-key password nor a public key pair generated by the DCE Security Server. This feature is intended for customers who are currently using the Entrust Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and have a need to map Entrust users to DCE users for authentication and access to resources provided by DCE. DCE NT 2.2 servers and clients support this public key certificate login feature.

  • DHCP Client support enables DCE NT V2.2 clients to run on Windows NT workstations or servers that use DHCP to obtain their IP addresses. DCE servers must have IP addresses that remain constant.

  • Multiple NIC support enables DCE for Windows NT V2.2 to run on PCs with multiple NICs installed. An environment variable is used to determine which of the NICs is used.

  • CDS Preferencing improves the performance of CDS clients by providing a ranking to the order in which clearinghouses are contacted by the client for CDS information. This is accomplished automatically through the use of defaults associated with the location of CDS clients with respect to CDS servers or by manual overrides made by cell administrators.

  • Kerberos V5 Interoperability is a TOG DCE 1.2.2 feature that includes an implementation of the MIT Kerberos Version 5 (V5) authentication and key distribution service in the DCE Security Server. Kerberos V5 enables applications running on either DCE or non-DCE platforms to access the DCE Security Server as a full-function IETF-RFC Kerberos Server.

  • Public Key Server support provides the TOG DCE 1.2.2 capability of using public and private keys for initial DCE authentication from client systems that support the TOG DCE 1.2.2 public key feature. DCE NT 2.2 clients do not support this public key feature. Public key support does not include the public key certification API or the private key storage server.

  • Microsoft Visual C++ V5.0 compiled DCE applications are fully supported.

  • Tunable Timeout Values enable configuration of internal timeout defaults for timeouts and configuration call intervals, Security Server initialization, TCP connections, and calls to CDS.

  • RPC Code Set Conversion, enhanced from the original TOG implementation, provides cross-platform code set support. The RPC interface version number has been increased to 2.0, which is the version supported in other IBM implementations of DCE.
For the convenience of customers who have DCE networks that include multiple operating systems, each program package in this announcement includes:
  • IBM DCE Application Development Kit and Runtime Services for Windows 95, V2.0

  • IBM DCE Management for Tivoli Management Framework, V1.0



Cryptographic Capabilities

Two types of data privacy are offered: Commercial Data Masking Facility (CDMF) and Data Encryption Standard (DES). CDMF enables 40-bit encryption. DES enables both 56-bit and 40-bit.

Both versions are approved for export outside the United States. However, some countries may have unique import regulations that apply to products containing encryption capability, particularly DES. Contact your IBM representative or your local export/import coordinator for information about your specific location.

For additional information about DCE for Windows 95 programs, refer to Software Announcement 298-063 dated March 24, 1998 (IBM DCE Runtime Services and Application Development Kit for Windows 95, Version 2.0).



Requirements for DCE Management for Tivoli Management Framework

This IBM feature is for use in Tivoli Management Framework environments. Specific prerequisite requirements are provided in the documentation included with the program software.

Compatibility: DCE NT V2.2 complies with applicable DCE Release 1.1, Release 1.2.1, and Release 1.2.2 specifications from TOG and interoperates with other IBM software servers (such as AIX (R), OS/2 (R) Warp) and non-IBM DCE implementations (such as HP, Digital, Gradient, and Solaris).

DCE NT V2.2 provides source-level runtime compatibility with DCE systems from other vendors for applications that conform to the TOG DCE Application Environment Specification (AES).

More information on interoperability and compatibility is located in the readme.txt file that is part of the DCE NT V2.2 program.

Supported Transport Protocols: DCE NT V2.2 provides RPC communications over TCP/IP and UDP/IP transport protocols.

Limitations: DCE NT V2.2 includes all of TOG DCE 1.2.2 features except:

Unsupported Services:

  • Security
    • Transitive Trust in a cell hierarchy
    • The Public Key Certificate Management API
    • The Private Key Storage server
    • User-to-User Authentication
    • Global Groups.
  • Directory
    • Hierarchical Cells
    • Global Directory Service (GDS) is not provided in this release. However, GDS provided by another vendor can exist in the same cell and be used for intercell communications.
  • RPC -- Single-threaded RPC
Unsupported Commands:
  • Security
    • sec_salvage_db
    • rlogin and rlogind
    • rsh and rshd
  • Distributed Time Service -- dtss-graph
Unsupported Subroutines:
  • Distributed File System (DFS) APIs
  • RPC code set wchar_t functions
Limitations of Supported Services

Public Key Certificate Login, based on TOG RFC 68.4, has the following limitations:

  • The kinit command cannot be used to refresh expired DCE credentials unless the DCE password is provided. Using the Entrust user profile and passphrase for this refresh operation is not supported. If the Entrust user profile name and passphrase are synchronized with the DCE principal name and password, this limitation is transparent to the user.

  • When multiple Entrust users are mapped to a single DCE principal, the level of detail of DCE functionality such as auditing and access control is reduced. Only the DCE principal information is available and used in audit records and access control checks.

  • If the pwd_val_type Extended Registry Attribute (ERA) that requires password strength checking is attached to a DCE principal, these checks are only enforced on the DCE password for that principal. The Entrust PKI establishes a separate set of rules which are enforced on the Entrust passphrase.

  • The key management API is used only by applications that use the shared-secret key authentication protocol. Application servers cannot use the public key certificate login protocol.

  • When using Generic Security Service Application Programming Interface (GSSAPI), the DCE administrator must set up an account in the DCE registry database for the initiator and the acceptor. The acceptor cannot use Public Key Certificate Login. No restrictions apply to the account for the initiator.
Public Key Login Support (based on DCE 1.2.2) has the following limitations:
  • The DCE Security Server supports login requests from DCE clients that support the TOG 1.2.2 public key login protocol. The TOG 1.2.2 protocol uses public-private key pairs that are generated by the DCE Security Server itself. This feature is separate from the IBM Public Key Certificate Login feature for DCE that supports login requests based on public key information that is generated by the Entrust public key infrastructure.

  • The DCE client does not support the use of TOG 1.2.2 public key protocol to login to DCE. For compatibility and interoperability purposes, the DCE Security Server supports these login requests from other DCE clients that do use the protocol.
