- send_auth (sock, cprinc, sprinc[, options])
Begin a Kerberos authorization sequence (typically performed on the client).
For the operation to complete, the corresponding server (on the
other end of sock, a connected socket object) must do a
corresponding recv_auth(). sock may be a Python socket
object or an int object corresponding to sock.fileno().
cprinc and sprinc are the client and server Principal
objects respectively. Subsequent calls to block read/write methods
implicitly use sock for transport. The authentication context
object is returned upon successful validation of the client and server
- recv_auth (sock, sprinc)
Complete a Kerberos authorization sequence (typically performed on the
server). recv_auth() blocks until a corresponding
send_auth() is issued by the peer on the client end of the
connected sock. sprinc is the server principal (for
yourself). The authentication context object is returned upon
successful validation of the client (read from sock) and server
Type of the Authentication Context object returned by
send_auth() and recv_auth().
