The Kerberos Network Authentication System
This site collects references to information about the system
described. It is not an authoritave source.
Without knowledge of the identity of an individual requesting an
operation, it is often difficult to decide whether the operation
should be allowed. Traditional authentication methods are not suitable
for use in computer networks where attackers can monitor network
traffic and intercept passwords. The use of strong authentication
methods that do not disclose passwords is imperative. The Kerberos
authentication system supports strong authentication on such networks.
