The keyusage is diffrent for diffrent encrypted blobs. See section 7.5.1 in
draft-ietf-krb-wg-kerberos-clarifications-05.txt for when they are used.

Its all in rfc1510 or kerberos-clarifications, I recommend the later. I
think you are looking for the structure named EncKDCRepPart.

BTW kerberos is ASN.1/DER, but that will make little diffrence for you as
you are only decoding.
