I agree with you that OpenAFS should implement better enctype. I'll raise it
on their list. In the mean time, this is a block, do you have an estimate how
long it takes to have the addition of v4 get into RHEL 6.3? I am asking because
we are moving from LDAP+Kerberos+Smaba+Kerberized NFSv4 to IPA+OpenAFS
to our new infrastructure by end of July.

There is another issue, by convention OpenAFS service principal is created as
afs/DOMAIN@REALM. IPA does not support creating a service principal without
first having a corresponding host principal, eg, afs/FQDN@REALM. Is it possible
to add the flexibility in IPA to create an arbitrary service principal, which 
can be
done with a standalone Kerberos KDC?

I'll try to open a ticket for v4.

Many thanks,

As I mentioned, I can create keytabs with des-cbc-crc:normal and 
but not with des-cbc-crc:v4, which is what OpenAFS uses.

please forgive me if this is a question that has been answered somewhere 

I am almost finished setting up my first OpenAFS cell using IPA's KDC for
authentication but stumble on this error:

[root@smb1 ~]# fs setacl /afs system:anyuser rl
fs: You don't have the required access rights on '/afs'

A thread on OpenAFS mailing list suggests that it is because I have wrong salt
with my afs service key. The right one should be "des-cbc-crc:v4", but 
following fails
when I tried to cretae the keytab file:
[root@smb1 ~]# ipa-getkeytab --server ipa2.sri.utoronto.ca -p
afs/openafs.sri.utoronto...@sri.utoronto.ca --keytab /etc/afs.keytab -e 
des-cbc-crc:v4 -P

Bad or unsupported salt type (1)!
Failed to create key material
OK, I just checkjed the code and found out that we do not support
creating keys with the 'v4' salt type in the ipa code.

I am not sure why I skipped that salt type when I coded it up.
Probably because it is basically obsolete (and amounts to unsalted keys)
and the only thing that still uses it is AFS which uses DES that is also
a completely deprecated and insecure algorithm these days.

Unfortunately it is not something that can be changed via some
parameter, if this is really needed I can only suggest opening a ticket
in freeipa trac instance.

But can't AFS use some decent crypto these days, like AES ?
