The Kerberos (RFC 1510 ) change password protocol (Horowitz ),
does not allow for an administrator to set a password for a new user.
This functionality is useful in some environments, and this proposal

result codes. We also extend the set/change protocol to allow a
client to send a sequence of keys to the KDC instead of a cleartext
password. If in the cleartext password case, the cleartext password
fails to satisfy password policy, the server should use the result

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
