"Kerberos provides a secure network authentication model using secret-key cryptography. Kerberos can be used with multiple services to offer superior authentication security.

"On a Centos system you can review a list of possible programs that are listed for kerberos with yum.

yum list | grep krb5

"You will see by default the workstation is installed so it can be an option for authentication.

yum install krb5-server

"Edit /etc/krb5.conf

"Note that when you edit this file be sure to use your domain and maintain the case on all changes. The realm names should be uppercase and the hostnames for DNS should be lowercase."
