I've just found this new smb server implementation while randomly
browsing github.


Seems to have started ~2 years ago by (probably) Samsung given some of
the copyrights statements.

>From the readme:
> - Implemented
>   a. SMB1(CIFS), SMB2/3 protocols for basic file sharing
>   b. Dynamic crediting
>   c. Compound requests
>   d. Durable handle
>   e. oplock/lease
>   f. Large MTU
>   g. NTLM/NTLMv2
>   h. Auto negotiation
>   i. HMAC-SHA256 Signing
>   j. Secure negotiate
>   k. Signing Update
>   l. Preautentication integrity(SMB 3.1.1)
>   m. SMB3 encryption

I had personally never heard about it.
