Kerberos 5 Library (libkrb5, -lkrb5)

SYNOPSIS


.In krb5.h krb5_error_code krb5_build_principal "krb5_context context" "krb5_principal *principal" "int realm_len" "krb5_const_realm realm" "..." krb5_error_code krb5_build_principal_ext "krb5_context context" "krb5_principal *principal" "int realm_len" "krb5_const_realm realm" "..." krb5_error_code krb5_build_principal_va "krb5_context context" "krb5_principal *principal" "int realm_len" "krb5_const_realm realm" "va_list ap" krb5_error_code krb5_build_principal_va_ext "krb5_context context" "krb5_principal *principal" "int realm_len" "krb5_const_realm realm" "va_list ap" krb5_error_code krb5_make_principal "krb5_context context" "krb5_principal *principal" "krb5_const_realm realm" "..."

DESCRIPTION

These functions create a Kerberos 5 principal from a realm and a list of components. All of these functions return an allocated principal in the principal parameter, this should be freed with krb5_free_principal after use.

The "build" functions take a realm and the length of the realm. The krb5_build_principal and krb5_build_principal_va also takes a list of components (zero-terminated strings), terminated with NULL. The krb5_build_principal_ext and krb5_build_principal_va_ext takes a list of length-value pairs, the list is terminated with a zero length.

The krb5_make_principal is a wrapper around krb5_build_principal. If the realm is NULL, the default realm will be used.

BUGS

You can not have a NUL in a component. Until someone can give a good example of where it would be a good idea to have NUL’s in a component, this will not be fixed.
