NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for krb5.conf (netbsd section 5)

KRB5.CONF(5)			     BSD File Formats Manual			     KRB5.CONF(5)

     krb5.conf -- configuration file for Kerberos 5

     #include <krb5/krb5.h>

     The krb5.conf file specifies several configuration parameters for the Kerberos 5 library, as
     well as for some programs.

     The file consists of one or more sections, containing a number of bindings.  The value of
     each binding can be either a string or a list of other bindings.  The grammar looks like:

		   /* empty */

		   section sections

		   '[' section_name ']' bindings


		   binding bindings

		   name '=' STRING
		   name '=' '{' bindings '}'


     STRINGs consists of one or more non-whitespace characters.

     STRINGs that are specified later in this man-page uses the following notation.

		values can be either yes/true or no/false.

		values can be a list of year, month, day, hour, min, second.  Example: 1 month 2
		days 30 min.  If no unit is given, seconds is assumed.

		valid encryption types are: des-cbc-crc, des-cbc-md4, des-cbc-md5, des3-cbc-sha1,
		arcfour-hmac-md5, aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96, and aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96 .

		an address can be either a IPv4 or a IPv6 address.

     Currently recognised sections and bindings are:

		Specifies the default values to be used for Kerberos applications.  You can spec-
		ify defaults per application, realm, or a combination of these.  The preference
		order is:
		1.   application realm option
		2.   application option
		3.   realm option
		4.   option

		The supported options are:

		      forwardable = boolean
			   When obtaining initial credentials, make the credentials forwardable.

		      proxiable = boolean
			   When obtaining initial credentials, make the credentials proxiable.

		      no-addresses = boolean
			   When obtaining initial credentials, request them for an empty set of
			   addresses, making the tickets valid from any address.

		      ticket_lifetime = time
			   Default ticket lifetime.

		      renew_lifetime = time
			   Default renewable ticket lifetime.

		      encrypt = boolean
			   Use encryption, when available.

		      forward = boolean
			   Forward credentials to remote host (for rsh(1), telnet(1), etc).


		      default_realm = REALM
			   Default realm to use, this is also known as your ``local realm''.  The
			   default is the result of krb5_get_host_realm(local hostname).

		      allow_weak_crypto = boolean
			   is weaks crypto algorithms allowed to be used, among others, DES is
			   considered weak.

		      clockskew = time
			   Maximum time differential (in seconds) allowed when comparing times.
			   Default is 300 seconds (five minutes).

		      kdc_timeout = time
			   Maximum time to wait for a reply from the kdc, default is 3 seconds.


			   These are described in the krb5_425_conv_principal(3) manual page.

		      capath = {

				 destination-realm = next-hop-realm


			   This is deprecated, see the capaths section below.

		      default_cc_type = cctype
			   sets the default credentials type.

		      default_cc_name = ccname
			   the default credentials cache name.	If you want to change the type
			   only use default_cc_type.  The string can contain variables that are
			   expanded on runtime.  Only support variable now is %{uid} that expands
			   to the current user id.

		      default_etypes = etypes ...
			   A list of default encryption types to use.

		      default_etypes_des = etypes ...
			   A list of default encryption types to use when requesting a DES cre-

		      default_keytab_name = keytab
			   The keytab to use if no other is specified, default is

		      dns_lookup_kdc = boolean
			   Use DNS SRV records to lookup KDC services location.

		      dns_lookup_realm = boolean
			   Use DNS TXT records to lookup domain to realm mappings.

		      kdc_timesync = boolean
			   Try to keep track of the time differential between the local machine
			   and the KDC, and then compensate for that when issuing requests.

		      max_retries = number
			   The max number of times to try to contact each KDC.

		      large_msg_size = number
			   The threshold where protocols with tiny maximum message sizes are not
			   considered usable to send messages to the KDC.

		      ticket_lifetime = time
			   Default ticket lifetime.

		      renew_lifetime = time
			   Default renewable ticket lifetime.

		      forwardable = boolean
			   When obtaining initial credentials, make the credentials forwardable.
			   This option is also valid in the [realms] section.

		      proxiable = boolean
			   When obtaining initial credentials, make the credentials proxiable.
			   This option is also valid in the [realms] section.

		      verify_ap_req_nofail = boolean
			   If enabled, failure to verify credentials against a local key is a
			   fatal error.  The application has to be able to read the corresponding
			   service key for this to work.  Some applications, like su(1), enable
			   this option unconditionally.

		      warn_pwexpire = time
			   How soon to warn for expiring password.  Default is seven days.

		      http_proxy = proxy-spec
			   A HTTP-proxy to use when talking to the KDC via HTTP.

		      dns_proxy = proxy-spec
			   Enable using DNS via HTTP.

		      extra_addresses = address ...

			   Write log-entries using UTC instead of your local time zone.

		      scan_interfaces = boolean
			   Scan all network interfaces for addresses, as opposed to simply using
			   the address associated with the system's host name.

		      fcache_version = int
			   Use file credential cache format version specified.

		      krb4_get_tickets = boolean
			   Also get Kerberos 4 tickets in kinit, login, and other programs.  This
			   option is also valid in the [realms] section.

		      fcc-mit-ticketflags = boolean
			   Use MIT compatible format for file credential cache.  It's the field
			   ticketflags that is stored in reverse bit order for older than Heimdal
			   0.7.  Setting this flag to TRUE make it store the MIT way, this is
			   default for Heimdal 0.7.

			   If set to "ignore", the framework will ignore any the server input to
			   krb5_rd_req(3,) this is very useful when the GSS-API server input the
			   wrong server name into the gss_accept_sec_context call.

		This is a list of mappings from DNS domain to Kerberos realm.  Each binding in
		this section looks like:

		      domain = realm

		The domain can be either a full name of a host or a trailing component, in the
		latter case the domain-string should start with a period.  The trailing component
		only matches hosts that are in the same domain, ie ``.example.com'' matches
		``foo.example.com'', but not ``foo.test.example.com''.

		The realm may be the token `dns_locate', in which case the actual realm will be
		determined using DNS (independently of the setting of the `dns_lookup_realm'


		      REALM = {

				 kdc = [service/]host[:port]
				      Specifies a list of kdcs for this realm.	If the optional
				      port is absent, the default value for the ``kerberos/udp''
				      ``kerberos/tcp'', and ``http/tcp'' port (depending on ser-
				      vice) will be used.  The kdcs will be used in the order
				      that they are specified.

				      The optional service specifies over what medium the kdc
				      should be contacted.  Possible services are ``udp'',
				      ``tcp'', and ``http''.  Http can also be written as
				      ``http://''.  Default service is ``udp'' and ``tcp''.

				 admin_server = host[:port]
				      Specifies the admin server for this realm, where all the
				      modifications to the database are performed.

				 kpasswd_server = host[:port]
				      Points to the server where all the password changes are
				      performed.  If there is no such entry, the kpasswd port on
				      the admin_server host will be tried.

				 krb524_server = host[:port]
				      Points to the server that does 524 conversions.  If it is
				      not mentioned, the krb524 port on the kdcs will be tried.



				      See krb5_425_conv_principal(3).

				      a boolan variable that defaults to false.  Old DCE secd
				      (pre 1.1) might need this to be true.



		      client-realm = {

				 server-realm = hop-realm ...
				      This serves two purposes. First the first listed hop-realm
				      tells a client which realm it should contact in order to
				      ultimately obtain credentials for a service in the
				      server-realm.  Secondly, it tells the KDC (and other
				      servers) which realms are allowed in a multi-hop traversal
				      from client-realm to server-realm.  Except for the client
				      case, the order of the realms are not important.

			   Specifies that entity should use the specified destination for log-
			   ging.  See the krb5_openlog(3) manual page for a list of defined des-

				      Specifies the realm that will be stored in this database.
				      It realm isn't set, it will used as the default database,
				      there can only be one entry that doesn't have a realm

				 mkey_file = FILENAME
				      Use this keytab file for the master key of this database.
				      If not specified DATABASENAME.mkey will be used.

				 acl_file = PA FILENAME
				      Use this file for the ACL list of this database.

				 log_file = FILENAME
				      Use this file as the log of changes performed to the data-
				      base.  This file is used by ipropd-master for propagating
				      changes to slaves.


		      max-request = SIZE
			   Maximum size of a kdc request.

		      require-preauth = BOOL
			   If set pre-authentication is required.  Since krb4 requests are not

			   What type of logging the kdc should use, see also [logging]/kdc.

		      use_2b = {

				 principal = BOOL
				      boolean value if the 524 daemon should return AFS 2b tokens
				      for principal.



		      hdb-ldap-structural-object structural object
			   If the LDAP backend is used for storing principals, this is the struc-
			   tural object that will be used when creating and when reading objects.

			   etype:salttype:salt syntax of this if something like:


			   If etype is omitted it means everything, and if string is omitted it
			   means the default salt string (for that principal and encryption
			   type).  Additional special values of keytypes are:

				 v5   The Kerberos 5 salt pw-salt

				 v4   The Kerberos 4 salt des:pw-salt:

		      use_v4_salt = BOOL
			   When true, this is the same as

		   default_realm = FOO.SE
		   .foo.se = FOO.SE
		   .bar.se = FOO.SE

			   default_domain = foo.se
		   kdc = FILE:/var/heimdal/kdc.log
		   kdc = SYSLOG:INFO
		   default = SYSLOG:INFO:USER

     Since krb5.conf is read and parsed by the krb5 library, there is not a lot of opportunities
     for programs to report parsing errors in any useful format.  To help overcome this problem,
     there is a program verify_krb5_conf that reads krb5.conf and tries to emit useful diagnos-
     tics from parsing errors.	Note that this program does not have any way of knowing what
     options are actually used and thus cannot warn about unknown or misspelled ones.
