Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 137612
Kerberos 5 1.2 does not include support for the RC4 cipher.
Last modified: 2012-06-20 09:23:27 EDT
Description of problem:
Kerberos 5 1.2 does not include support for the RC4 cipher. This
triggers errors if a client attempts to exchange signed or encrypted
data with an application server using an RC4 session key.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Proper RC4 support also requires support for the RC4 string-to-key
algorithm and GSSAPI message formats.
The type of the session key is selected by the KDC while responding to
a KRB_TGS_REQ request from the client, and is usually RC4 for services
running on Windows hosts.
