Kerberos Support for ODP.NET Core

With .NET Core 3.0 upcoming in Sept, it seems that they are finally bringing Kerberos support.

In our environment we are highly dependent on Kerberos authentication to our Oracle database, currently using .NET Framework with ODP.NET.

We are trying to move to development on .NET Core, as such it is really useful and important for us to have ODP.NET Core Kerberos ready, which as per documentation it isn't at the moment as compared to ODP.NET and ODP.NET Managed.

    Microsoft has provided an update. MIT Kerberos API support will now not be available in .NET 5. The reason stated is: "We think the APIs won't be used by too many people." They are hoping a third-party will implement this, but none have emerged. If the community is interested in having Microsoft or the community implement this feature, please upvote the GitHub issue.
