FAST is a pre-authentication framework for Kerberos. It includes a mechanism for
tunneling pre-authentication exchanges using armoured KDC messages. FAST provides
increased resistance to passive password guessing attacks.
This project proposes to include minimal implementation of FAST in MIT
Kerberos. This project is being sent out for review to get review of
the proposed scope and to determine what if any additional artifacts
would be required as part of a successful FAST implementation.
Approval of this project does not actually mean that FAST will be
implemented; the intent is to get approval and discussion of the scope
and basic design of FAST for MIT Kerberos.
