In the past few months there have been many changes in the roles of
members of the Kerberos team.  One of the most important changes is
that John Kohl is pursuing graduate studies at Berkeley and is no
longer the person to contact with queries about Kerberos.  

As has always been the case, queries about Kerberos are best sent to
addresses set up specifically to handle such queries.  Requests for
information about the release, or for documentation should be sent to  The release and documentation are available by
FTP from ATHENA-DIST.MIT.EDU in the directory /pub/kerberos, and also
available through electronic mail by sending a message with the first
line of "HELP" to

Bug reports for Version 4 of Kerberos should be sent to  For Version 5, they should be sent to  General discussion about Kerberos takes place on
the mailing list (gatewayed in both directions to the
Usenet newsgroup comp.protocols.kerberos).  To be added to the mailing
list send a message to

The present leader of the Kerberos development team is Ted Ts'o.  He
is overseeing the continued development of Version 5, and to some
extent, maintenance of Version 4.  Queries or bug reports should go to
the mailing lists, not to him personally.

The Version 5 protocol spec is now pretty stable and has been
submitted to the IETF as an Internet Draft.  There are still some
minor changes with respect to encryption and checksum methods that are
being made and some additional changes might result as it makes its
way through the IETF standards track. Discussion about the Version 5
protocol takes place on the mailing list
( to be added).  If you don't want to send
your comments to the entire list, you should contact both John and
myself.  Bug reports and queries about the V5 implementation should be
directed to and respectively.

Jeff Schiller, Ted Ts'o and myself are also starting to look towards
future changes to Kerberos.  Anyone wishing to discuss such issues
should send a message to the kerberos or krb-protocol lists or contact
one of us directly.
