Currently, channel bindings are implemented using an MD5 hash in the
Kerberos Version 5 Generic Security Service Application Programming
Interface (GSS-API) mechanism (RFC 4121).  This document updates
RFC 4121 to allow channel bindings using algorithms negotiated based
on Kerberos crypto framework as defined in RFC 3961.  In addition,
because this update makes use of the last extensible field in the
Kerberos client-server exchange message, extensions are defined to
allow future protocol extensions.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
