heimdal: encode/decode kvno as signed integer
This patch changes the encoding/decoding of kvno (key version number)
in blobs and packets to signed integer, for compatibility with Windows.
Reportedly, MIT Kerberos does the same.
This patch effectively reverts commit 1124c4872dfb81bec9c4b527b8927ca35e39a599
in the heimdal tree.
According to the Kerberos spec (RFC 4120 5.2.9), the kvno field
in encrypted data object is an unsigned integer that fits in
32 bits. The Heimdal Kerberos component bundled with Samba
conforms to this. However, Windows deviates from the standard
and encodes kvno as a signed integer, and this creates
ASN.1 DER has no special encoding for unsigned integer. A 32-bit
unsigned integer is encoded as a signed integer, so while a signed
32-bit integer (covering the range of -0x80000000..0x7fffffff) is
encoded using up to 4 bytes, an unsigned integer (covering
0..0xffffffff) could require 5 bytes.
Normally, kvno for a given account starts at 1 and increments on
password changes. Kerberos defined this as unsigned because there's
no meaning for negative version numbers, so the standard writers figured
4 billion versions is better than 2 billion. It was not
expected for a kvno to really go past 0x7fffffff and the disctinction
usually does not matter. However, RODCs use kvnos which
have the most-significant bit set.
In Active Directory, RODCs have a private secret for the krbtgt,
because the assumption is that the RODC is less secure, and
recovering the domain krbtgt secret from the RODC would compromise
the security of the entire domain. The kvno field is being used
to identify the private krbtgt account that owns the key - the
upper 16 bits are the RODC id, and the lower 16 bits identify
the key version number for this specific RODC. It's common to
have an RODC id greater than 0x8000, and therefore to have a
kvno larger than 0x7fffffff, which would be DER-encoded using
Windows encodes kvno as signed integer - basically taking the
32 bits and treating them as a signed integer rather than an
unsigned integer. This means that in Windows a kvno can
always be encoded using 4 bytes, and Windows DCs reject a kvno
encoded using more than 4 bytes without even generating an error
response (the DC assumes it's an attack).
Heimdal re-encodes the TGT when it creates a TGS request. Obviously
it cannot decode and encode the encrypted parts but it does re-encode
the plain parts, which include the kvno. That leads to a 5-byte
kvno in the TGS request, which is rejected without an error
