This document defines a new encryption type and a new checksum type
for use with Kerberos V5 [RFC1510]. This encryption type is based on
the Triple DES cryptosystem and the HMAC-SHA1 [Krawczyk96] message
The des3-cbc-hmac-sha1 encryption type has been assigned the value 7.
The hmac-sha1-des3 checksum type has been assigned the value 12.
Encryption Type des3-cbc-hmac-sha1
EncryptedData using this type must be generated as described in
[Horowitz96]. The encryption algorithm is Triple DES in Outer-CBC
mode. The keyed hash algorithm is HMAC-SHA1. Unless otherwise
specified, a zero IV must be used. If the length of the input data
is not a multiple of the block size, zero octets must be used to pad
the plaintext to the next eight-octet boundary. The counfounder must
be eight random octets (one block).
Checksum Type hmac-sha1-des3
Checksums using this type must be generated as described in
[Horowitz96]. The keyed hash algorithm is HMAC-SHA1.

Internet Draft Kerberos Triple DES with HMAC-SHA1 November, 1996
Where the Triple DES key is represented as an EncryptionKey, it shall
be represented as three DES keys, with parity bits, concatenated
together. The key shall be represented with the most significant bit
When keys are generated by the derivation function, a key length of
168 bits shall be used. The output bit string will be converted to a
valid Triple DES key by inserting DES parity bits after every seventh
Any implementation which implements either of the encryption or
checksum types in this document must support both.
This entire document defines encryption and checksum types for use
with Kerberos V5.
