"The authors of this paper have drawn upon their combined experience
with supporting large Kerberos
deployments, writing and developing web-based identity protocols, and
integrating heterogeneous
authentication services in order to produce this paper. Thus the views
expressed herein are not necessarily
those of the MIT Kerberos Consortium or its members.

In this paper we outline the evolution of Web Identity and Services and
describe the issues surrounding this
complex landscape. These issues are captured within a set of more
specific requirements that are deemed
necessary to satisfy the relevant stakeholders; these requirements are
then framed within the context of some
general use cases. We then propose and describe a number of activities
that leverage Kerberos to realize
these improvements, and present an overall strategy and architectural
model for working towards a more
cohesive and widely deployed Kerberos-based Web authentication
