Kerberos: What, Why, How?

Collected here are the notes and ramblings associated with a presentation I recently gave at a Duke Futures meeting focusing on Database technologies, Authentication, and Single Sign-On issues. There's a great deal of material here, and I'm hoping to eventually add more (including a bibliography, a section on mechanisms for using public-key encryption for authentication and a section on the current status of authentication and single sign-on systems at Duke). Check back periodically for updates to this document tree...

I also have a "hotlist" of interesting sites pertaining to Kerberos and Kerberos development around the planet. If you enjoyed the above, you might be interested in stuff other folks are doing:
