4.4. Site Constants

The KDC implementation should have the following configurable constants or options, to allow an administrator to make and enforce policy decisions:

  • The minimum supported lifetime (used to determine whether the KDC_ERR_NEVER_VALID error should be returned). This constant should reflect reasonable expectations of round-trip time to the KDC, encryption/decryption time, and processing time by the client and target server, and it should allow for a minimum "useful" lifetime.

  • The maximum allowable total (renewable) lifetime of a ticket (renew_till - starttime).

  • The maximum allowable lifetime of a ticket (endtime - starttime).

  • Whether to allow the issue of tickets with empty address fields (including the ability to specify that such tickets may only be issued if the request specifies some authorization_data).

  • Whether proxiable, forwardable, renewable or post-datable tickets are to be issued.
