Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video Kerberos and LDAP, part of CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) Cert Prep: 4 Identity and Access Management.
- [Instructor] The Kerberos access control system…is widely used to implement authentication…and authorization systems on both UNIX…and Windows platforms.…It is one of the core protocols underlying…Microsoft Active Directory.…Kerberos is a ticket-based authentication system…that allows user to authenticate to a centralized service…and then use tickets from that authentication process…to gain access to distributed systems…that support Kerberos authentication.…Here's how Kerberos works.…
An end user wants to gain access to a service…that supports Kerberos.…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 user name and password.…The client then creates a cleartext 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…
