Conventions used in this document 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 [RFC2119]. 2. Domain-Based Names for the Kerberos V GSS-API Mechanism In accordance with [I-D.ietf-kitten-gssapi-domain-based-names] this document provides the mechanism-specific details needed to implement GSS-API [RFC2743] domain-based service names with the Kerberos V GSS- API mechanism [RFC4121]. GSS_C_NT_DOMAINBASED_SERVICE name SHOULD be mapped to Kerberos V principal names as follows: o the <service> name becomes the first (0th) component of the Kerberos V principal name; o the <hostname> becomes the second component of the Kerberos V principal name; o the <domain> name becomes the third component of the Kerberos V principal name; o the realm of the resulting principal name is that which corresponds to the domain name, treated as a hostname. The same name canonicalization considerations and methods as used elsewhere in the Kerberos V GSS-API mechanism [RFC4121] and Kerberos V [RFC4120] in general apply here. Implementations SHOULD use a Kerberos V name-type of NT-SRV-HST- DOMAIN (integral value to be assigned, possibly after WGLC?) but MAY use NT-UNKNOWN instead. 3. Internationalization considerations It is unclear, at this time, how best to address internationalization of Kerberos V domain-based principal names. This is because the Kerberos V core protocol internationalization project is incomplete. However, clearly the best way to interoperate when using Kerberos V domain-based principal names is to use ACE-encoded internationalized domain names [RFC3490] for the hostname and domain name slots of a Kerberos V domain-based principal name. Therefore Kerberos V GSS-API mechanism implementations MUST do just that. 4. Examples o The domain based name, of generic form, "ldap@Example.TLD@ds1.Example.TLD" may map to a Kerberos V principal name like: "ldap/ds1.example.tld/ example.tld@EXAMPLE.TLD" o The domain based name, of generic form, "kadmin@Example.TLD@kdc1.Example.TLD" may map to a Kerberos V principal name like: "kadmin/kdc1.example.tld/ example.tld@EXAMPLE.TLD" 4.5. Security Considerations See [I-D.ietf-kitten-gssapi-domain-based-names]. 5.It is important for the security of protocols using the Kerberos V GSS-API mechanism and domain-based names, that the realm of domain- based principal names be derived from the hostname, rather than the domain name slots of the input domain-based name string. 6.
