DESCRIPTION

The krb5_verify_user function verifies the password supplied by a user. The principal whose password will be verified is specified in Fa principal . New tickets will be obtained as a side-effect and stored in Fa ccache (if NULL the default ccache is used). Fn krb5_verify_user will call Fn krb5_cc_initialize on the given Fa ccache , so Fa ccache must only initialized with Fn krb5_cc_resolve or Fn krb5_cc_gen_new . If the password is not supplied in Fa password (and is given as NULL the user will be prompted for it. If Fa secure the ticket will be verified against the locally stored service key Fa service (by default `host' if given as NULL ).

The Fn krb5_verify_user_lrealm function does the same, except that it ignores the realm in Fa principal and tries all the local realms (see krb5.conf5). After a successful return, the principal is set to the authenticated realm. If the call fails, the principal will not be meaningful, and should only be freed with krb5_free_principal3.

Fn krb5_verify_opt_alloc and Fn krb5_verify_opt_free allocates and frees a krb5_verify_opt You should use the the alloc and free function instead of allocation the structure yourself, this is because in a future release the structure wont be exported.

Fn krb5_verify_opt_init resets all opt to default values.

None of the krb5_verify_opt_set function makes a copy of the data structure that they are called with. It's up the caller to free them after the Fn krb5_verify_user_opt is called.

Fn krb5_verify_opt_set_ccache sets the Fa ccache that user of Fa opt will use. If not set, the default credential cache will be used.

Fn krb5_verify_opt_set_keytab sets the Fa keytab that user of Fa opt will use. If not set, the default keytab will be used.

Fn krb5_verify_opt_set_secure if Fa secure if true, the password verification will require that the ticket will be verified against the locally stored service key. If not set, default value is true.

Fn krb5_verify_opt_set_service sets the Fa service principal that user of Fa opt will use. If not set, the `host' service will be used.

Fn krb5_verify_opt_set_flags sets Fa flags that user of Fa opt will use. If the flag KRB5_VERIFY_LREALMS is used, the Fa principal will be modified like Fn krb5_verify_user_lrealm modifies it.

Fn krb5_verify_user_opt function verifies the Fa password supplied by a user. The principal whose password will be verified is specified in Fa principal . Options the to the verification process is pass in in Fa opt .  

EXAMPLES

Here is a example program that verifies a password. it uses the `host/`hostname`' service principal in krb5.keytab
#include <krb5.h>

int
main(int argc, char **argv)
{
    char *user;
    krb5_error_code error;
    krb5_principal princ;
    krb5_context context;

    if (argc != 2)
        errx(1, "usage: verify_passwd <principal-name>");

    user = argv[1];

    if (krb5_init_context(&context) < 0)
        errx(1, "krb5_init_context");

    if ((error = krb5_parse_name(context, user, &princ)) != 0)
        krb5_err(context, 1, error, "krb5_parse_name");

    error = krb5_verify_user(context, princ, NULL, NULL, TRUE, NULL);
    if (error)
        krb5_err(context, 1, error, "krb5_verify_user");

    return 0;
}
