A new draft white paper entitled "The Role of Kerberos in Modern  
Information Systems" is now available at:


This document takes an architectural look at security, but it is not  
a reference manual for security architects. Instead, it focuses on  
the role of the Kerberos authentication system as part of the overall  
ecosystem of security technologies, services, and software components  
likely to be encountered in a typical modern distributed-systems  

It is intended for those who design, build, and manage enterprise  
computing infrastructure, as well as for those who develop software  
intended to operate in such environments. This document should,  
ideally, answer many of the questions about how Kerberos fits into  
modern information systems, and how it relates to other vital system  

Additional white papers and specifications are available at:
