This page shows all known information about tag protocol::kerberos.
Kerberos is an authentication protocol for computer networks for secure
authentication over an otherwise insecure network, using symmetric
cryptography and a third party service provider, that is trusted both by
client and server.
The authentication mechanism provided by Kerberos is mutual, so that not only
a server can be sure of a client's identity, but also a client can be sure a
connection to a server is not intercepted.
