Title: Kerberos Authentication in Apache


The presentation will focus on authentication in the Apache web server, with emphasis on scenarios combining Kerberos and other authentication methods. We will describe current state of the mod_auth_kerb module and features that have been implemented recently. Attention will be paid to possibilities how the module can co-exist with other Apache authentication modules, including the ones verifying passwords by other means (LDAP, local database, etc.).  We will also introduce a new mapping module performing rule-based transformations of usernames, which makes it easier to combine multiple authentication methods and also application development.
