The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 10088
Authentication failing due to case sensitive comparison of service ticket entry
Last modified: 2013-08-15 20:00:11 UTC
While performing Kerberos authentication, Samba does a case sensitive comparison between the service ticket entry with krb5.keytab file. This caues the authetication to fail in certain cases. It should be changed into case insensitive comparison.
Principal in GET request: http/foo@ADTEST.COM
Principal in krb5.keytab: HTTP/FOO@ADTEST.COM
are considered as differner entries while they are same. The code change in library should be made in file principal.c in line 924 and 990 to change strcmp to strcasecmp.
source4/heimdal/lib/krb5/principal.c Line:924 and Line 990.
