Besides the Kerberos RFCs (e.g., 1510) and the documentation to the MIT implementation (http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/www/krb5-1.2/index.html#documentation), the following are worth reading:
2. Kerberos section in William Stallings' Cryptography and Network Security (which is based on 1.)
3. Sun GSS-API Programming Guide (http://docs.sun.com/?p=/doc/816-1331&a=load)

Well, I read the same 150 piece of garbage you're probably referring to and I know what you mean.
The book that I learned the most about Kerberos from was "Windows 2000 Security" by Roberta Bragg (New Riders Publishing). While this book is Windows oriented, it does a very good job of explaining the basics of Kerberos. Chapter 5 is called "Kerberos in the Raw" and takes a OS independent look at the protocol. From the introduction of that chapter:
"Before you begin the study of MS's implementation of the Kerberos standard, and certainly before you compare their implementation to those from other vendors, it is important to study the standard itself, uncooked -- in the raw. "
And that's exactly what it does.

What do you think is the best book I could get on kerberos? The only thing I could find is some 150 page piece of garbage. Any ideas?
