Kerberos V is not internationalized. Applications are expected to provide
ASCII characters with Kerberos, which is in compliance with the specification.
Non-ASCII username/passwords are not supported under the present definition.
There is an ongoing effort at IETF to address this.
I understand that this is an older thread.
We have spent lot of time on the internet to find out any possible workarounds or permanent solutions to enable Multi-Byte character support for username / password / SPN with Kerberos and Java . But no luck so far :(
Are there any new updates on this i18n issue ?
The Kerberos client in the Sun SDK only supports ASCII characters for username and password.
The Quest Java Library for Kerberos supports UTF-8 usernames and, in the next release, plans to support UTF-8 passwords.
Thanks for those pointers :)
