Authenticate Method

Authenticates the user.

Syntax

async kerberos.authenticate(): Promise<void>

Remarks

This method authenticates the User.

Authentication

When Authenticate is called the class will attempt to authenticate the user with the Key Distribution Center (KDC). The class will communicate with the KDCHost to obtain a service ticket and populate AuthToken. The following properties are required when calling this method:

A typical sequence of messages would be:

  • KRB_AS_REQ -> KDC
  • KRB_AS_REP <- KDC
  • KRB_TGS_REQ -> KDC
  • KRB_TGS_REP <- KDC
  • AuthToken is populated with the constructed KRB_AP_REP message.

Communication with the KDCHost can be seen through the PITrail event.
