The Kerberos access control system is widely used to implement authentication and authorization systems on both UNIX and Windows platforms. LDAP allows services on a network to share information about users and their authorizations in a standardized, open format. Active Directory uses LDAP in combination with Kerberos. In this video, learn how these two protocols work together.

We sometimes refer to this service as a kerberized service.…First, the end user uses a Kerberos client on his or her…system to provide a username and password.…The client then creates a clear text authentication…request that it sends to an authentication server.…The authentication server then looks up the user…in its database and retrieves the user's password.…It sends two messages back to the client.…The first is a randomly generated session key…used for future communication between the client…
