Strong Authentication at Fermilab (Sept 2006)

The manual is available in a variety of formats:

Individual files in PDF are available via links from the Web Help and HTML pages.

Strong authentication is a form of computer security in which the identities of networked users, clients and servers are verified without transmitting passwords over the network.

The Kerberos Network Authentication Service V5 is the network authentication program that Fermilab uses to implement strong authentication. In addition to establishing identity (authentication), it supports encrypted network connections, thereby providing confidentiality.

All computer users at Fermilab have a responsibility to understand the broad outlines of Fermilab's Strong Authentication policy, and to comply with the policy.
