Hi Carlos,

For these types of questions, you
should be on the kerberos at
mailing list.

I'm currently involved in the process,

Here is a good overview of how things work:

Alf Wachsmann's tutorial in Linux Journal
explains setting up your KDC and more.

There are examples programs in the download.

I've also been using IBM's online documentation
as well (for example, krb5_rd_req).

Hope that helps,
