Technical Summary

  There are some issues when the cross-realm operation of the Kerberos
  Version 5 [RFC4120] will emerge when deployed into real world systems.
  This document describes two classes of fairly complex systems where
  cross-realm kereberos could be applied, and lists requirements and
  restriction of the operation in such systems.  Then it describes issues

  when we apply the cross-realm operation to such systems.

Working Group Summary

  This document represents the consensus of the Kerberos Working Group.

Document Quality

  This document does not specify a protocol; rather, it analyzes the
  use of Kerberos cross-realm authentication and discusses a number
  of issues which may impede some deployments.  Solutions to some of
  these problems are under active development.

Personnel

  The Document Shepherd for this document is Jeffrey Hutzelman.
