With its adoption by diverse vendors such as Microsoft, Sun, and Apple, Kerberos has become the de-facto standard for enterprise authentication.
Sadly, the documentation for Kerberos has never been its strong point. Many administrators find the lack of "big picture" documentation a hindrance to the use of Kerberos, and how it interacts with AFS has always been an endless source of confusion.
The goal of this tutorial is to de-mystify Kerberos, and explain its role within AFS. While this will not be a hands-on tutorial, participants are encouraged to ask specific questions related to issues they have with Kerberos at their site. Topics will include:
The day will be four 90 minute sessions with breaks in the morning and afternoon, plus a mid-day break for lunch.
Slides are available for tutorial attendees (username/password required)
