I want to thank whoever mentioned KerbNet by Cygnus Solutions! Wowza!
I recommend that people check it out. It lets you implement Kerberos
under UNIX and NT, and have them work together (so you have one *unified*
security system that is used by both your NT and UNIX boxes).
It's at http://www.cygnus.com/product/kerbnet-index.html
It also does authentication *without* sending passwords over the network,
greatly enhancing security. And it also lets you open up DES encrypted
telnet, ftp and rlogin sessions. I am very impressed with the quality of
this package, and encourage those out there who are not familiar with
Kerberos to take a look at the package and see what it can do for you.
There's quite a learning curve if you are not familiar with Kerberos,
but I think it's worth it.
Now, I just got it running on my Debian/GNU Linux machine at home, and
partially set up on our Linux server at work. HERE'S THE BIG QUESTION:
Anyone know how to get *Samba* to work with Kerberos? Is there an easy,
painless way or will it require me doing open-heart surgery on the Samba
authentication source code? (Which I would be willing to do, *if* there isn't
anyone else out there who has already done it.)
