Hello team,

We are experiencing Active Directory interoperability issues for the MIT Kerberos 1.20 release, which is introducing generation of PAC for all tickets by default. There are two scenarios:

* Cross-realm AD TGS request from an MIT Kerberos client (realm trust)[1]
* Cross-realm S4U2Self request for a FreeIPA service to impersonate an AD user
  (forest trust)[2]

In both cases, a TGS-REQ[3][4] against AD using the cross-realm TGT results in a generic error (MS-SFU 4.2 step 3[5] in S4U2Self case). We suspect these two failures may have the same underlying cause, because of the "e-data" attribute from the KRB_ERR_GENERIC message[6][7]:

    [1] {
      INTEGER 136
    [2] {

The octet string is different, but the integer is the same in both scenarios.
According to the MS-KILE specification, this piece of data should be a KERB-ERROR-DATA structure[8]. However the 136 integer do not match any of the documented "data-type" values.

This error is most likely related to the PAC, because in the realm trust case, the cross-realm TGS-REQ works in case PAC support is disable on the MIT KDC (i.e. the MIT TGT does not contain a PAC).

Could you please give us more details about KERB-ERROR-DATA code 136, and check if you see anything wrong in the PACs that are being used in these 2 scenarios?
