KRB524_CONVERT_CREDS_... BSD Library Functions Manual KRB524_CONVERT_CREDS_...

NAME
     krb524_convert_creds_kdc, krb524_convert_creds_kdc_ccache -- converts
     Kerberos 5	credentials to Kerberos	4 credentials

LIBRARY
     Kerberos 5	Library	(libkrb5, -lkrb5)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <krb5.h>

     krb5_error_code
     krb524_convert_creds_kdc(krb5_context context, krb5_creds *in_cred,
	 struct	credentials *v4creds);

     krb5_error_code
     krb524_convert_creds_kdc_ccache(krb5_context context, krb5_ccache ccache,
	 krb5_creds *in_cred, struct credentials *v4creds);

DESCRIPTION
     Convert the Kerberos 5 credential to Kerberos 4 credential.  This is done
     by	sending	them to	the 524	service	in the KDC.

     krb524_convert_creds_kdc()	converts the Kerberos 5	credential in in_cred
     to	Kerberos 4 credential that is stored in	credentials.

     krb524_convert_creds_kdc_ccache() is different from
     krb524_convert_creds_kdc()	in that	way that if in_cred doesn't contain a
     DES session key, then a new one is	fetched	from the KDC and stored	in the
     cred cache	ccache,	and then the KDC is queried to convert the credential.

     This interfaces are used to make the migration to Kerberos	5 from Ker-
     beros 4 easier.  There are	few services that still	need Kerberos 4, and
     this is mainly for	compatibility for those	services.  Some	services, like
     AFS, really have Kerberos 5 supports, but still uses the 524 interface to
     make the migration	easier.
