----------------------------------

             Summary: Add mode to allow KerberosString's to contain UTF-8 for MSFT KDC interop
                 Key: DIRKRB-595
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRKRB-595
             Project: Directory Kerberos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: changepw
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-RC1
            Reporter: Griff James


By definition KerberosString's are supposed to be in the range 0x20-0x7F. MSFT's kerberos
implementation breaks this rule and allows Kerberos strings to contain UTF-8 characters for
I18n.

Java's Kerberos implementation has MSFT compatibility mode which is enabled by setting the
system property "sun.security.krb5.msinterop.kstring" to "true". This allows KerberosString's
to contain UTF-8.

The attached patch is a proposed change to add the same support to the kerberos-code jar to
allow the change password protocol to work for users with UTF-8 chars in their principal name.
