NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     krb5_sname_to_principal, krb5_sock_to_principal - create a service principal

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     Kerberos 5 Library (libkrb5, -lkrb5)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <krb5/krb5.h>

     krb5_sname_to_principal(krb5_context context, const char *hostname,
             const char *sname, int32_t type, krb5_principal *principal);

     krb5_sock_to_principal(krb5_context context, int socket,
             const char *sname, int32_t type, krb5_principal *principal);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     These functions create a ``service'' principal that can, for instance, be
     used to lookup a key in a keytab. For both these function the sname
     parameter will be used for the first component of the created principal.
     If sname is NULL, ``host'' will be used instead.
     krb5_sname_to_principal() will use the passed hostname for the second
     component. If type KRB5_NT_SRV_HST this name will be looked up with
     gethostbyname().  If hostname is NULL, the local hostname will be used.

     krb5_sock_to_principal() will use the ``sockname'' of the passed socket,
     which should be a bound AF_INET socket.
