  Kerberos Authorization Data Container Authenticated by Multiple MACs
                      draft-ietf-krb-wg-cammac-05

Abstract

   Abstract: This document specifies a Kerberos Authorization Data
   container that supersedes AD-KDC-ISSUED.  It allows for multiple
   Message Authentication Codes (MACs) or signatures to authenticate the
   contained Authorization Data elements.

Internet-Draft  Container Authenticated by Multiple MACs       July 2013

1.  Introduction

   This document specifies a new Authorization Data container for
   Kerberos, called AD-CAMMAC (Container Authenticated by Multiple
   MACs), that supersedes AD-KDC-ISSUED.  The container allows both the
   receiving application service and the Key Distribution Center (KDC)
   itself to verify the authenticity of the contained authorization
   data.  The AD-CAMMAC container can also include additional verifiers
   that "trusted services" can use to verify the contained authorization
   data.

2.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

3.  Validation

   Kerberos ticket authorization data are highly sensitive and must be
   validated to insure that no tampering has occurred.  Although
   authorization data are in the encrypted part of a Kerberos ticket and
   therefore have their integrity protected by the ticket encryption,
   clients can request that KDCs insert potentially arbitrary
   authorization data into tickets on their behalf.  The Kerberos
   protocol specifications allow this client behavior because the
   originally envisioned usage of authorization data was to serve as
   restrictions on the client's privileges.  Services that need to
