copies the list of realms from from to to . to should be freed by the caller using krb5_free_host_realm .

krb5_free_host_realm frees all memory allocated by realmlist .

krb5_get_default_realm returns the first default realm for this host. The realm returned should be freed with free .

krb5_get_default_realms returns a NULL terminated list of default realms for this context. Realms returned by krb5_get_default_realms should be free with krb5_free_host_realm .

krb5_get_host_realm returns a NULL terminated list of realms for host by looking up the information in the [domain_realm] in krb5.conf or in DNS . If the mapping in [domain_realm] results in the string dns_locate , DNS is used to lookup the realm.

When using DNS to a resolve the domain for the host a.b.c, krb5_get_host_realm looks for a TXT resource record named _kerberos.a.b.c , and if not found, it strips off the first component and tries a again (_kerberos.b.c) until it reaches the root.

If there is no configuration or DNS information found, krb5_get_host_realm assumes it can use the domain part of the host to form a realm. Caller must free realmlist with krb5_free_host_realm .

krb5_set_default_realm sets the default realm for the context . If NULL is used as a realm , the [libdefaults]default_realm stanza in krb5.conf is used. If there is no such stanza in the configuration file, the krb5_get_host_realm function is used to form a default realm.
