It says this:
Kerberos realm names are case sensitive. Realm names that differ
only in the case of the characters are not equivalent.
So, from that, the REALM SaMdOm.EXAMPLE.COM would not be the same REALM as the
It then goes on to say:
Domain style realm names MUST look like domain names: they consist of
components separated by periods (.) and they contain neither colons
(:) nor slashes (/). Though domain names themselves are case
insensitive, in order for realms to match, the case must match as
well. When establishing a new realm name based on an internet domain
name it is recommended by convention that the characters be converted
I read this to mean that, whilst you can have a dns domain like
SaMdOm.example.com, it will be treated as if it was samdom.example.com as far
as DNS is concerned. This is different from the REALM as shown above,
where a case difference matters.
It then seems to go on to say that a new REALM must be based on the dns
domain, but in uppercase.
This means, to me at least, that the REALM is the dns domain in uppercase
