Function Documentation

KRB5_LIB_FUNCTION krb5_error_code KRB5_LIB_CALL krb5_acl_match_file (krb5_context context, const char * file, const char * format, ...)

krb5_acl_match_file matches ACL format against each line in a file using krb5_acl_match_string(). Lines starting with # are treated like comments and ignored.

Parameters:

context Kerberos 5 context.
file file with acl listed in the file.
format format to match.
... parameter to format string.

Returns:

Return an error code or 0.

krb5_acl_match_string

KRB5_LIB_FUNCTION krb5_error_code KRB5_LIB_CALL krb5_acl_match_string (krb5_context context, const char * string, const char * format, ...)

krb5_acl_match_string matches ACL format against a string.

The ACL format has three format specifiers: s, f, and r. Each specifier will retrieve one argument from the variable arguments for either matching or storing data. The input string is split up using ' ' (space) and '\t' (tab) as a delimiter; multiple and '\t' in a row are considered to be the same.

List of format specifiers:

·
s Matches a string using strcmp(3) (case sensitive).
·
f Matches the string with fnmatch(3). Theflags argument (the last argument) passed to the fnmatch function is 0.
·
r Returns a copy of the string in the char ** passed in; the copy must be freed with free(3). There is no need to free(3) the string on error: the function will clean up and set the pointer to NULL.

Parameters:

context Kerberos 5 context
string string to match with
format format to match
... parameter to format string

Returns:

Return an error code or 0.

3 ret = krb5_acl_match_string(context, "foo", "s", "foo");
4 if (ret)
5     krb5_errx(context, 1, "acl didn't match");
6 ret = krb5_acl_match_string(context, "foo foo baz/kaka",
7     "ss", "foo", &s, "foo/\*");
8 if (ret) {
9     // no need to free(s) on error
10     assert(s == NULL);
11     krb5_errx(context, 1, "acl didn't match");
12 }
13 free(s);

new_hostname output hostname, caller must free hostname with krb5_xfree().

Returns:

Return an error code or 0, see krb5_get_error_message().

KRB5_LIB_FUNCTION krb5_error_code KRB5_LIB_CALL krb5_expand_hostname_realms (krb5_context context, const char * orig_hostname, char ** new_hostname, char *** realms)

krb5_expand_hostname_realms() expands orig_hostname to a name we believe to be a hostname in newly allocated space in new_hostname and return the realms new_hostname is believed to belong to in realms.

Parameters:

context a Keberos context

KRB5_LIB_FUNCTION krb5_boolean KRB5_LIB_CALL krb5_kuserok (krb5_context context, krb5_principal principal, const char * luser)

This function takes the name of a local user and checks if principal is allowed to log in as that user.

The user may have a ~/.k5login file listing principals that are allowed to login as that user. If that file does not exist, all principals with a only one component that is identical to the username, and a realm considered local, are allowed access.

The .k5login file must contain one principal per line, be owned by user and not be writable by group or other (but must be readable by anyone).

Note that if the file exists, no implicit access rights are given to user@LOCALREALM.

Optionally, a set of files may be put in ~/.k5login.d (a directory), in which case they will all be checked in the same manner as .k5login. The files may be called anything, but files starting with a hash (#) , or ending with a tilde (~) are ignored. Subdirectories are not traversed. Note that this directory may not be checked by other Kerberos implementations.

If no configuration file exists, match user against local domains, ie luser@LOCAL-REALMS-IN-CONFIGURATION-FILES.

Parameters:

context Kerberos 5 context.
principal principal to check if allowed to login
luser local user id

Returns:

returns TRUE if access should be granted, FALSE otherwise.

KRB5_LIB_FUNCTION krb5_error_code KRB5_LIB_CALL krb5_plugin_register (krb5_context context, enum krb5_plugin_type type, const char * name, void * symbol)

Register a plugin symbol name of specific type.

Parameters:

context a Keberos context
type type of plugin symbol
name name of plugin symbol
symbol a pointer to the named symbol

Returns:

In case of error a non zero error com_err error is returned and the Kerberos error string is set.
