Sadly, the documentation for Kerberos has never been its strong point. Many administrators find the lack of "big picture" documentation a hinderance 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:
