The purpose of this project is to create an Audit infrastructure to monitor security related events on the KDC.
The following events are targeted in the initial version: - startup and shutdown of the KDC; - AS_REQ and TGS_REQ exchanges. This includes client address and port, KDC request and request ID, KDC reply, primary and derived ticket and their ticket IDs, second ticket ID, cross-realm referral, was ticket renewed and validated, local policy violation and protocol constraints, and KDC status message.
Ticket ID is introduced to allow to link tickets to their initial TGT at any stage of the Kerberos exchange. For the purpose of this project it is a private to KDC ticket ID: each successfully created ticket is hashed and recorded into audit log. The administrators can correlate the primary and derived ticket IDs after the fact.
Request ID is a randomly generated alpha-numeric string. Using this ID an administrator can easily correlate multiple audit events related to a single request. It should be informative both in cases when the request is sent to multiple KDCs, or to the same KDC multiple times.
For the purpose of testing and demo of the Audit, the JSON based modules are implemented: "test" and "simple" audit modules respectively. The file plugins/audit/j_dict.h is a dictionary used in this implememtations.
The new Audit system is build-time enabled and run-time pluggable.
