The protocol was named after the character Kerberos or Cerberus from Greek mythologythe ferocious three-headed guard dog of Hades. Its designers aimed it primarily at a client—server model and it provides mutual authentication —both the user and the server verify each other’s identity.
Kerberos protocol messages are protected against eavesdropping and replay attacks. Kerberos builds on symmetric key cryptography and requires a trusted third partyand optionally may use public-key cryptography during certain phases of authentication. The protocol is based on the earlier Needham—Schroeder symmetric key protocol.
Several versions of the protocol exist; versions 1—3 occurred only internally at MIT. Kerberos version 4 was primarily designed by Steve Miller and Clifford Neuman.
Published in the late s, kerneros 4 was also targeted at Project Athena. Neuman and Kohl published version 5 in with the intention of overcoming existing limitations and security problems. The Swedish implementation was based on a limited version called eBones. Founding sponsors include vendors such as OracleApple Inc.
Windows and later uses Kerberos as its default authentication method. Kerberos is used as preferred authentication method: In general, joining a client to a Windows domain means enabling Kerberos as default protocol for authentications from that client to services in the Windows domain and all domains with trust relationships to that domain.
In contrast, when either client or server or both are not joined to a domain or not part of the same trusted domain environmentWindows will instead use NTLM for authentication between client and server.
Embedded implementation of the Kerberos V authentication protocol for client agents and network services running on embedded platforms is also available from companies. The KDC issues a ticket-granting ticket TGTwhich is time stamped and encrypts it using the ticket-granting service’s TGS secret key and returns the encrypted result to the user’s workstation. This is done infrequently, typically at user logon; the TGT expires at some point although it may be transparently renewed by the user’s session manager while they are logged in.
When the client needs to communicate with another node “principal” in Kerberos parlance to some service on that node the client sends the TGT to the TGS, which usually shares the same host as the KDC.
The client uses the SPN to request access to this service.
After verifying that the TGT is valid and that the user is permitted to access the requested service, the TGS issues ticket and session keys to the client. The client then sends the ticket to the service server SS along with its service request.
