Validating Kerberos Tickets

773175 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated

My ultimate goal is to validate a kerberos ticket generated by user1 on a server side application which connects to the KDC with user2.

I have been following the examples at:

I have changed the krb5.conf to suit our environment, I have changed the jaas-krb5.conf to:
client { required     

server { required
The prinicipal of the server is getting validated by the keytab file , login is successful, however on trying to validate the ticket , I am getting :
Entered Krb5Context.acceptSecContext with state=STATE_NEW
Checksum failed !
Exception in thread "main" GSSException: Failure unspecified at GSS-API level (Mechanism level: Checksum failed)
I am new to Kerberos authentication, please can someone guide me how to do this type of validation.
