Install and configuring kerberos On Slackware without PAM


This procedure will result in a new Kerberos realm. If you already have access to a Kerberos KDC, you can skip to the client and application server parts. Also, the below procedure is very abbreviated and is not a substitute for reading the documentation supplied in the package or on the MIT Kerberos website.

  1. Install krb (you can download and build it from http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.1/network/krb5/)
  2. Configure /etc/krb5.conf, /var/krb5kdc/kdc.conf and /var/krb5kdc/kadm5.acl . These files are examples which you should adjust after reading the Kerberos documentation.


        example.com = EXAMPLE.COM
        .example.com = EXAMPLE.COM

        default_realm = EXAMPLE.COM
        dns_kdc_lookup = true
        dns_realm_lookup = true
        forwardable = true
        renewable = true

	kdc = kerberos-1.example.com:88
	kdc = kerberos-2.example.com:88
        admin_server = kerberos-1.example.com:749


        kdc_ports = 749,88

        EXAMPLE.COM = {
                database_name = /var/krb5kdc/principal
                admin_keytab = FILE:/var/krb5kdc/kadm5.keytab
                acl_file = /var/krb5kdc/kadm5.acl
                key_stash_file = /var/krb5kdc/.k5.EXAMPLE.COM
                kdc_ports = 749,88
                max_life = 10h 0m 0s
                max_renewable_life = 7d 0h 0m 0s
                supported_keytypes = aes256-cts des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5
