  • Windows 2000 Kerberos Authentication

    The next generation of the Microsoft Windows operating system will adopt Kerberos as the default protocol for network authentication. An emerging standard, Kerberos provides a foundation for interoperability while enhancing the security of enterprise-wide network authentication.
    Windows 2000 implements Kerberos version 5 with extensions for public key authentication. The Kerberos client is implemented as a security provider through the Security Support Provider Interface. Initial authentication is integrated with the Winlogon single sign-on architecture. The Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) is integrated with other Windows 2000 security services running on the domain controller and uses the domain's Active Directory as its security account database.
    This white paper examines components of the protocol and provides detail on its implementation
