Overview

This Puppet module is designed to facilitate the installation and configuration of MIT Kerberos. The primary scope includes installing the user utilities (kinit, etc) on the system and populating krb5.conf with the appropriate sections.

Other tasks such as setting up KDC services are not covered.

Dependencies

Examples

class { 'mit_krb5':
  default_realm      => 'INSECURE.LOCAL',
  permitted_enctypes => ['des-cbc-crc', 'des-cbc-md5'],
  allow_weak_crypto  => true
}
class { 'mit_krb5::logging':
  default => ['FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log', 'SYSLOG']
}
mit_krb5::realm { 'INSECURE.LOCAL':
  kdc          => ['kdc1.insecure.local', 'kdc2.insecure.local'],
  admin_server => 'kpasswd.insecure.local',
}
mit_krb5::domain_realm { 'INSECURE.LOCAL':
  domains => ['insecure.local', '.insecure.local']
}

Yields the following krb5.conf:

[logging]
    default = FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log
    default = SYSLOG

[libdefaults]
    default_realm = INSECURE.LOCAL
    permitted_enctypes = des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5
    allow_weak_crypto = true

[realms]
    INSECURE.LOCAL = {
        kdc = kdc1.insecure.local
        kdc = kdc2.insecure.local
        admin_server = kpasswd.insecure.local
    }

[domain_realm]
    insecure.local = INSECURE.LOCAL
    .insecure.local = INSECURE.LOCAL

Code such as this would mimic the example file shipped with CentOS/RHEL:

class { 'mit_krb5::install': }
class { 'mit_krb5':
  default_realm    => 'EXAMPLE.COM',
  dns_lookup_realm => false,
  dns_lookup_kdc   => false,
  ticket_lifetime  => '24h',
  renew_lifetime   => '7d',
  forwardable      => true,
}
class { 'mit_krb5::logging':
  default      => 'FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log',
  kdc          => 'FILE:/var/log/krb5kdc.log',
  admin_server => 'FILE:/var/log/kadmind.log'
}
mit_krb5::realm { 'EXAMPLE.COM':
  kdc          => 'kerberos.example.com',
  admin_server => 'kerberos.example.com'
}
mit_krb5::domain_realm { 'EXAMPLE.COM':
  domains => ['.example.com', 'example.com']
}

mit_krb5::logging

Class to configure [logging] section
