Kerberos is a protocol that uses a trusted third party to enable secure communications over a TCP/IP network. The protocol uses encrypted tickets rather than plain-text passwords for secure network authentication and also supports encryption of the data stream.
After you configure a session using Kerberos, you can export these settings to an XML file in order to deploy them. The first time a user opens a Reflection Kerberos session, these settings are imported into the registry.
NOTE:Kerberos connections are available for VT terminal sessions.
Before you start
Make sure you know the following information:
If you are configuring Kerberos using Windows credentials:
You must be logged into a Windows domain.
You must know the fully qualified name of a host that is running a kerberized server application (such as telnetd or ftpd) and that has been joined to the Windows domain.
If you are configuring Kerberos using a KDC, Make sure your system has a KDC server and that you know:
The fully-qualified name of a host that is properly configured and running a kerberized server application (such as telnetd or ftpd).
The fully qualified KDC host name.
The Kerberos principal (and password) with which you will be authenticating.
The Kerberos realm.
