Need a confession to make...
Not every WikiNinja is as ferocious as Ninja Ed. (Wish I would...)
And some of them have pets. Yes, pets. (Which Ed will never admit.)
Please meet my favorite companion: Kerberos.
Fact is, every ITPro will inevitably bounce into him when configuring secure interoperability, server security, network applications...
If you rather like some multi-media hands-on, check these Technet Edge videos.
Actually I would like to embed them here but the editor does not allow the scripts, sorry.
UPDATE (18/jan/2012) : check out this video presentation on Technet Edge: Kerberos Authentication – How it works!
BTW: have you seen the impressive tag collection of Technet Edge. (Please, I do want this on Wiki too!)
It's the tuesday TNWiki Article Spotlight, so let me show you my top 3 puppy stuff on TechtNet Wiki.
Kerberos is nice to have when it works, but it can be very (very) hard to troubleshoot when it goes wrong.
So n° 3 certainly will be very helpful.
If you really want to know more about the lovely monster (or if you can't circumvent it anymore), here's a short list to bookmark:
- Wiki search or Wiki tag search.
- Kerberos on Edge (FYI: be careful, the tag has been misspelled.)
- Kerberos on TechNet Gallery
- Kerberos on Microsoft Support
