Sure, I haven't read the (grand-)parent posts until now ...

At my workplace we're currently switching to LDAP for distribution of
user data and Kerberos for authentication; I would recommend the PADL
homepage as one other poster already has.

If one runs NIS on the network, I believe there is the possibility of
switching to Kerberos for authentication while still using NIS for the
name services.
