Ok with the current code I've made some progress - I can now successfully get a TGT from Kerby. However, I'm running into a puzzling issue when trying to get a service key. Essentially, the clientPrincipal in KdcRequest.checkClient() is an empty String (and has a "null" NameType). This means that it just tries to retrieve the client Principal using @realm, and this fails.

On the first TGT pass, the client + server principals in checkClient look like:

Client PRINC: alice@service.ws.apache.org
Client PRINC type: NT_PRINCIPAL
Server PRINC: krbtgt/service.ws.apache.org@service.ws.apache.org
Server PRINC type: NT_SRV_INST

On the second call:

Client PRINC: @service.ws.apache.org
Client PRINC type: NT_UNKNOWN
Server PRINC: bob/service.ws.apache.org@service.ws.apache.org
Server PRINC type: NT_UNKNOWN

The SName looks find. But the CName is missing. I know this code works fine with the KDC in Apache Directory, so we must be doing something odd with the parsing in Kerby.

Hi Colm,

 

I thought it’s good to have the following fix for now, as it processes the enctypes list from client from first to end. I just fired a follow-on issue to double check this.

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRKRB-236

 

+        for (EncryptionType encType : request.getReqBody().getEtypes()) {
+            if (clientEntry.getKeys().containsKey(encType)) {
+                EncryptionKey clientKey = clientEntry.getKeys().get(encType);
+                setClientKey(clientKey);

Is there any existing code in Apache Directory along these lines?

Hi Colm,

 

Yes it’s a great fix! May be we could also update our related kdc test to repeat the issue and guard the fix? In our existing tests, the enctypes used in KrbClient are the same with the ones in KdcServer side, so we don’t find the issue until now. Yes, client may very likely request different enctypes that the KdcServer doesn’t support/enable yet.

 

yes, clients can send different enctypes depending the platform they are running on.
 

The enctypes should always be sorted from the most to least strong/preferred on the server side

and then pick the best from the ones requested by the client.

Thanks again.

Hi Kai,

I've found another bug. We are just picking the first desired encryption type in KdcRequest.checkClient(). However, we may not actually have this key. This leads to an NPE. Example:

We are requesting:

aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96 18
aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96 17
des3-cbc-sha1 16
arcfour-hmac 23
des-cbc-crc 1
des-cbc-md5 3

We pick the first one...however we only have the following keys stored:

des3-cbc-sha1 16
aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96 17

What do you think of this patch?

The problem above is that the "end time" is 0 instead of "null". What do you think of this patch?

Hi Kai,

2.     Please disable preauth in KDC side or require preauth in client side. Looks like client didn’t send preauth data but KDC required it.

 

Ok I got a bit further by doing this. However, from what I can find out, the GSS client code should be sending the Pre authentication data (and there appears to be no option to disable it). So I think there may be a bug in how Kerby is processing the header? Should we log a JIRA to track this?

The error I now get (when disabling pre auth in Kerby) is:

org.apache.kerby.kerberos.kerb.KrbException: Requested start time is later than end time

Any ideas? The Kerby server + CXF client are both on the same machine...

Colm.

 

 

If you don’t want to trouble with the config stuff, please just change the default value of PREAUTH_REQUIRED in krb/kdc config key enumeration.

Kai

Actually I spoke too soon, I do know how to reproduce the "pre-authentication" error. Simply uncomment the line "kerbyServer.setInnerKdcImpl(new NettyKdcServerImpl());" in the test. If I put a printStackTrace in the NettyKdcServerImpl, I see:

Hi Kai,

Thanks for your response. I have a test-case of sorts that shows the interop failure (although I can't reproduce the issue I reported yesterday about the preauthentication data).

https://github.com/coheigea/testcases/tree/master/apache/cxf/cxf-kerberos-kerby

Run it with "mvn clean install". You may need the install the parent module as well before running this, which is one level up.

The test sets up a Kerby server, and I have a @Ignore'd test using Kerby client API to successfully communicate with it. Then I have a Apache CXF-based test which uses the Kerberos functionality here (based on GSS) to get a service ticket. If I put printStackTrace in the DefaultKdcHandler the output looks like:

Hi Colm,

 

We haven’t any test for GSS client against Kerby yet, though we do have tests in protocol level for ApReq (in kerb-core-test module). We might look at existing ApacheDS Kerberos codes to see if any such end to end tests to port.

 

You’re right, current UDP support for KdcNetwork and NettyKdcNetwork are to be done yet. I originally got them done some days ago, but recently I was extremely busy with other projects, so kinds of delayed. Sure JIRAs would be good to record them.

 

For the issue you ran into, do you have test codes to repeat it, so we may have the chance to look at it? Thanks.

Kai

Subject: Kerby GSS tests?

 

Hi all,

 

Are there any tests in the source (or has anyone successfully tested) a Java GSS client -> Apache Kerby?

The first issue I ran into was that neither the KdcNetwork nor the NettyKdcNetwork work with UDP. Is there a JIRA for this (or any plans to fix it)?

I could work around the above by setting "udp_preference_limit = 1". However, I then run into an issue where it fails due to no pre-authentication data in the request. Are we sure that this parsing is working correctly?

Colm.
