Library

Kerberos 5 Library (libkrb5, -lkrb5)

Synopsis

#include <krb5.h>

krb5_error_code
krb5_copy_creds(krb5_context context, const krb5_creds *incred, krb5_creds **outcred);

krb5_error_code
krb5_copy_creds_contents(krb5_context context, const krb5_creds *incred, krb5_creds *outcred);

krb5_error_code
krb5_free_creds(krb5_context context, krb5_creds *outcred);

krb5_error_code
krb5_free_cred_contents(krb5_context context, krb5_creds *cred);

Description

krb5_creds holds Kerberos credentials:

typedef struct krb5_creds { 
    krb5_principal	client; 
    krb5_principal	server; 
    krb5_keyblock	session; 
    krb5_times		times; 
    krb5_data		ticket; 
    krb5_data		second_ticket; 
    krb5_authdata	authdata; 
    krb5_addresses	addresses; 
    krb5_ticket_flags	flags; 
} krb5_creds;

krb5_copy_creds() makes a copy of incred to outcred. outcred should be freed with krb5_free_creds() by the caller.

krb5_copy_creds_contents() makes a copy of the content of incred to outcreds. outcreds should be freed by the called with krb5_free_creds_contents().

krb5_free_creds() frees the content of the cred structure and the structure itself.

krb5_free_cred_contents() frees the content of the cred structure.
