Centrify Server Suite integrates Unix systems into Active Directory to enable centralized management of user authentication and authorization. Most users will have already authenticated to their Windows workstation and need to access the Unix system remotely over the Enterprise network. One of the benefits of using Active Directory and Server Suite is the ability to leverage the built-in Kerberos infrastructure to securely authenticate a user from one computer to the next as they need to access resources without requiring the user to re-submit authentication credentials.


SecureCRT 5.0 from VanDyke Software provides native support for both SSH and Kerberos, enabling Windows users to seamlessly and securely access remote Unix systems that have been integrated into Active Directory with Server Suite and that are running a Kerberized version of an SSH server such as OpenSSH. This application note guides you through the configuration of SecureCRT in order to seamlessly access a Unix system using Kerberos and SSH.
