Interesting little tidbit, sort-of confirming the notion that Kerberos will be
an integral part of WinNT's security scheme:
(need MSDN premium access to get here, free for the time being, just register
on MS's MSDN web site).
"Transitive trust is a feature of the Kerberos system, which provides the
distributed authentication and authorization in Windows NT next generation
Methinks it's time the Samba code is scanned for possible problems with
Kerberization. Thus, if Samba is ready for interaction with M$'s beta of its
distributed directory/auth system, we can push for a *correct* implementation
of Kerberos on NT, and not the half-baked, incompatible implementations that
they sometimes (?) release.
Think of a standard protocol on NT! The thought boggles the mind :).
Cheers... Marco Zamora
