The functions starting with krb5_c are compat functions with MIT kerberos.

The krb5_enc_data structure holds and encrypted data. There are two public accessible members of krb5_enc_data. enctype that holds the encryption type of the data encrypted and ciphertext that is a krb5_data that might contain the encrypted data.

krb5_c_block_size() returns the blocksize of the encryption type.

krb5_c_decrypt() decrypts input and store the data in output. If ivec is NULL the default initialization vector for that encryption type will be used.

krb5_c_encrypt() encrypts the plaintext in input and store the ciphertext in output.

krb5_c_encrypt_length() returns the length the encrypted data given the plaintext length.

krb5_c_enctype_compare() compares to encryption types and returns if they use compatible encryption key types.

krb5_c_make_checksum() creates a checksum cksum with the checksum type cksumtype of the data in data. key and usage are used if the checksum is a keyed checksum type. Returns 0 or an error code.

krb5_c_verify_checksum() verifies the checksum of data in cksum that was created with key using the key usage usage. verify is set to non-zero if the checksum verifies correctly and zero if not. Returns 0 or an error code.

krb5_c_checksum_length() returns the length of the checksum.

krb5_c_set_checksum() sets the krb5_checksum structure given type and data. The content of cksum should be freeed with krb5_c_free_checksum_contents().

krb5_c_get_checksum() retrieves the components of the krb5_checksum. structure. data should be free with krb5_free_data(). If some either of data or checksum is not needed for the application, NULL can be passed in.

krb5_c_valid_enctype() returns true if etype is a valid encryption type.

krb5_c_valid_cksumtype() returns true if ctype is a valid checksum type.

krb5_c_is_keyed_cksum() return true if ctype is a keyed checksum type.

krb5_c_is_coll_proof_cksum() returns true if ctype is a collision proof checksum type.

krb5_c_keylengths() return the minimum length (inlength) bytes needed to create a key and the length (keylength) of the resulting key for the enctype.
