I've put a PostScript version of my recent paper "The Evolution of the
Kerberos Authentication Service" onto (

This paper was presented at the Spring 1991 EurOpen Conference, in
Tromsoe, Norway.


The Kerberos Authentication Service, developed at MIT, has been widely
adopted by other organizations to eliminate the trusted-host problem in
open networks.  While a step up from traditional security in networked
systems, Kerberos version 4 is not sufficiently flexible for some
environments.  These inflexibilities and the remedies introduced with
the Kerberos version 5 are described.
