The functions documented in this manual page document the functions that facilitates the exchange between a Kerberos client and server. They are the core functions used in the authentication exchange between the client and the server.

The krb5_mk_req and krb5_mk_req_extended creates the Kerberos message KRB_AP_REQ that is sent from the client to the server as the first packet in a client/server exchange. The result that should be sent to server is stored in Fa outbuf .

Fa auth_context should be allocated with Fn krb5_auth_con_init or NULL passed in, in that case, it will be allocated and freed internally.

The input data Fa in_data will have a checksum calculated over it and checksum will be transported in the message to the server.

Fa ap_req_options can be set to one or more of the following flags:

Use the session key when creating the request, used for user to user authentication.
Mark the request as mutual authenticate required so that the receiver returns a mutual authentication packet.

The krb5_rd_req read the AP_REQ in Fa inbuf and verify and extract the content. If Fa server is specified, that server will be fetched from the Fa keytab and used unconditionally. If Fa server is NULL the Fa keytab will be search for a matching principal.

The Fa keytab argument specifies what keytab to search for receiving principals. The arguments Fa ap_req_options and Fa ticket returns the content.

When the AS-REQ is a user to user request, neither of Fa keytab or Fa principal are used, instead Fn krb5_rd_req expects the session key to be set in Fa auth_context .

The krb5_verify_ap_req and krb5_build_ap_req both constructs and verify the AP_REQ message, should not be used by external code.
