That is basically jcifs-ext. See the link on our site.

Because the Kerberos filter doesn't really have anything to do with CIFS
it will never be integrated into mainline jCIFS. Presumably if someone
were to create a nice standalone authentication filter they might abstract
the mechanisms such that NTLMSSP support could be provided by a third
party such as jCIFS.
