Description

The string to key functions convert a string to a kerberos key.

krb5_string_to_key_data_salt_opaque() is the function that does all the work, the rest of the functions are just wrappers around krb5_string_to_key_data_salt_opaque() that calls it with default values.

krb5_string_to_key_data_salt_opaque() transforms the password with the given salt-string salt and the opaque, encryption type specific parameter opaque to a encryption key key according to the string to key function associated with enctype.

The key should be freed with krb5_free_keyblock_contents().

If one of the functions that doesn't take a krb5_salt as it argument krb5_get_pw_salt() is used to get the salt value.

krb5_get_pw_salt() get the default password salt for a principal, use krb5_free_salt() to free the salt when done.

krb5_free_salt() frees the content of salt.
