DESCRIPTION

krb5_keyblock holds the encryption key for a specific encryption type. There is no component inside krb5_keyblock that is directly referable.

Fn krb5_keyblock_get_enctype returns the encryption type of the keyblock.

Fn krb5_copy_keyblock makes a copy the keyblock Fa inblock to the output Fa out . Fa out should be freed by the caller with Fa krb5_free_keyblock .

Fn krb5_copy_keyblock_contents copies the contents of Fa inblock to the Fa to keyblock. The destination keyblock is overritten.

Fn krb5_free_keyblock zeros out and frees the content and the keyblock itself.

Fn krb5_free_keyblock_contents zeros out and frees the content of the keyblock.

Fn krb5_generate_random_keyblock creates a new content of the keyblock Fa key of type encrytion type Fa type . The content of Fa key is overwritten and not freed, so the caller should be sure it is freed before calling the function.

Fn krb5_generate_subkey generates a Fa subkey of the same type as Fa key . The caller must free the subkey with Fa krb5_free_keyblock .

Fn krb5_generate_subkey_extended generates a Fa subkey of the specified encryption type Fa type . If Fa type is ETYPE_NULL of the same type as Fa key . The caller must free the subkey with Fa krb5_free_keyblock .

Fn krb5_keyblock_init Fill in Fa key with key data of type Fa enctype from Fa data of length Fa size . Key should be freed using Fn krb5_free_keyblock_contents .

Fn krb5_keyblock_zero zeros out the keyblock to to make sure no keymaterial is in memory. Note that Fn krb5_free_keyblock_contents also zeros out the memory.

Fn krb5_random_to_key converts the random bytestring to a protocol key according to Kerberos crypto frame work. It the resulting key will be of type Fa enctype . It may be assumed that all the bits of the input string are equally random, even though the entropy present in the random source may be limited
