NAME
     krb5_string_to_key, krb5_string_to_key_data,
     krb5_string_to_key_data_salt, krb5_string_to_key_data_salt_opaque,
     krb5_string_to_key_salt, krb5_string_to_key_salt_opaque,
     krb5_get_pw_salt, krb5_free_salt -- turns a string	to a Kerberos key

LIBRARY
     Kerberos 5	Library	(libkrb5, -lkrb5)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <krb5.h>

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_string_to_key(krb5_context context, krb5_enctype enctype,
	 const char *password, krb5_principal principal, krb5_keyblock *key);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_string_to_key_data(krb5_context context, krb5_enctype	enctype,
	 krb5_data password, krb5_principal principal, krb5_keyblock *key);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_string_to_key_data_salt(krb5_context context,	krb5_enctype enctype,
	 krb5_data password, krb5_salt salt, krb5_keyblock *key);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_string_to_key_data_salt_opaque(krb5_context context,
	 krb5_enctype enctype, krb5_data password, krb5_salt salt,
	 krb5_data opaque, krb5_keyblock *key);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_string_to_key_salt(krb5_context context, krb5_enctype	enctype,
	 const char *password, krb5_salt salt, krb5_keyblock *key);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_string_to_key_salt_opaque(krb5_context context,
	 krb5_enctype enctype, const char *password, krb5_salt salt,
	 krb5_data opaque, krb5_keyblock *key);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_get_pw_salt(krb5_context context, krb5_const_principal principal,
	 krb5_salt *salt);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_free_salt(krb5_context context, krb5_salt salt);

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.
