     krb5_error_code

     const char *password, krb5_verify_opt *opt);

DESCRIPTION
     The krb5_verify_user function verifies the password supplied by a user.
     The principal whose password will be verified is specified in principal.
     New tickets will be obtained as a side-effect and stored in ccache (if
     NULL, the default ccache is used).  krb5_verify_user() will call
     krb5_cc_initialize() on the given ccache, so ccache must only initialized
     with krb5_cc_resolve() or krb5_cc_gen_new().  If the password is not
     supplied in password (and is given as NULL) the user will be prompted for
     it.  If secure the ticket will be verified against the locally stored
     service key service (by default `host' if given as NULL ).

     The krb5_verify_user_lrealm() function does the same, except that it
     ignores the realm in principal and tries all the local realms (see
     krb5.conf(5)).  After a successful return, the principal is set to the
     authenticated realm. If the call fails, the principal will not be
     meaningful, and should only be freed with krb5_free_principal(3).

     krb5_verify_opt_alloc() and krb5_verify_opt_free() allocates and frees a
     krb5_verify_opt.  You should use the the alloc and free function instead
     of allocation the structure yourself, this is because in a future release
     the structure wont be exported.

     krb5_verify_opt_init() resets all opt to default values.

     None of the krb5_verify_opt_set function makes a copy of the data
     structure that they are called with. It's up the caller to free them
     after the krb5_verify_user_opt() is called.

     krb5_verify_opt_set_ccache() sets the ccache that user of opt will use.
     If not set, the default credential cache will be used.

     krb5_verify_opt_set_keytab() sets the keytab that user of opt will use.
     If not set, the default keytab will be used.

     krb5_verify_opt_set_secure() if secure if true, the password verification
     will require that the ticket will be verified against the locally stored
     service key. If not set, default value is true.

     krb5_verify_opt_set_service() sets the service principal that user of opt
     will use. If not set, the `host' service will be used.

     krb5_verify_opt_set_flags() sets flags that user of opt will use.  If the
     flag KRB5_VERIFY_LREALMS is used, the principal will be modified like
     krb5_verify_user_lrealm() modifies it.

     krb5_verify_user_opt() function verifies the password supplied by a user.
     The principal whose password will be verified is specified in principal.
     Options the to the verification process is pass in in opt.

EXAMPLES
     Here is a example program that verifies a password. it uses the
     `host/`hostname`' service principal in krb5.keytab.

     #include <krb5/krb5.h>

     int
     main(int argc, char **argv)
     {
         char *user;
         krb5_error_code error;
         krb5_principal princ;
         krb5_context context;

         if (argc != 2)
             errx(1, "usage: verify_passwd <principal-name>");

         user = argv[1];

         if (krb5_init_context(&context) < 0)
             errx(1, "krb5_init_context");

         if ((error = krb5_parse_name(context, user, &princ)) != 0)
             krb5_err(context, 1, error, "krb5_parse_name");

         error = krb5_verify_user(context, princ, NULL, NULL, TRUE, NULL);
         if (error)
             krb5_err(context, 1, error, "krb5_verify_user");

         return 0;
     }
