The question was:

> Is anyone using kerberos (with Solaris 2.6) ?
> I would appreciate any pointers to documentation.

I only got one reply pointing me to information, others told me they
were investigating similar things (the question was a little vague and
integrating NT accounts with unix-accounts seems to be a difficult


LDAP, kerberos and NIS integration:

(RFC 2307 Using LDAP as a Network Information Service, March 1998)


Thanks go to Walter Steiner:

kerberos V:
 (same as krb5-1.0.5.doc.tar.gzfrom Kerberos-Distribution)

kerberos V and pam:
This seems to be a pam-module for Solaris 2.6 that can be used in

login auth sufficient /usr/lib/security/
login auth required /usr/lib/security/

kerberos IV and secure rpc in Solaris:
search for secure rpc.
kerberos IV works with an kerberos V server (compile with
kerb IV support)

Windows NT:
Kerberos V support is planned for Windows NT.
In an Microsoft White Paper, it is said that Kerberos replaces Lan Manager
as Security Protokol in NT5. The implementation will be based on RFC1510.
I dont know if that means that an easy integration with Kerberos on UNIX
will be possible.
(That Kerberos is from MIT is mentioned only once :-)
