Abstract: Secure remote access to UNIX and Linux systems is generally accomplished through SSH. The most frequent implementation of that protocol is OpenSSH, originally written for the OpenBSD project but now ported to a wide variety of platforms. This paper will show how to use OpenSSH with the Kerberos portion of Active Directory to automate authentication.
