Centrify DirectControl uses Kerberos technology to authenticate UNIX sessions with Active Directory credentials. One of the advantages of using Kerberos is that it enables applications and many common network tools to be used without having to re-enter user and password information. Since Kerberos is built into DirectControl, it is possible to use standard Kerberos tools to leverage secure, authenticated, ticket-based, single sign-on sessions.
Centrify has compiled an optional package that includes Kerberos-based development components as well as Kerberized utilities and services. These are based on the latest Kerberos distribution from MIT and the tools can be used with the standard DirectControl product. This Application Note describes how to install, configure and use the components included with the Centrify DirectControl Kerberos Tools package.
