New requirements from Congress and the National Institute of standards 
is forcing us to reconsider our Samba domain because of the encryption 
requirements and signed communications.

I have tried to work my way through Kerberos , server signing and all 
that but even though I am no rookie, it is beyond me.

Is any one at Samba looking at this?  

Unless there is some one out there with the smarts to lead a way through 
Pretty much all US federal government agencies will have to abandon 
Samba and go down that other path.

The root of all this evil can be found here :
