    kerberos configuration

    Christian Roth Newbie

      hi all
      I try to setup a kerberos security configuration with a standalone java client on windows xp; the client correctly gets the kerberos token from windows os using a configuration that looks like this:

      kerberoslogincontextname {
      com.sun.security.auth.module.Krb5LoginModule required
      debug=false
      useTicketCache=true;
      };

      the client java code is as follows:

      Properties props = new Properties();
      props.setProperty( Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory" );
      props.setProperty( Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES, "org.jboss.naming.client" );
      props.setProperty( Context.PROVIDER_URL, "jnp://localhost:1099" );
      InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext( props );

      TextCallbackHandler callbackHandler = new TextCallbackHandler();

      LoginContext loginContext = new LoginContext( "kerberoslogincontextname", callbackHandler );
      loginContext.login();
      Subject subject = loginContext.getSubject();
      log.debug( "__subject=" + subject.toString() );

      // here I call the remote bean ..

      When I try to extract the principal on the server side, I always get null for this principal; I don't use a kerberos config on the server side but a simple UsersRolesLoginModule application policy - but this should also be working, right?

      I appreciate any comments :-)
      regards, christian
