Kerberos Authentication in Sun RPC

  title={Kerberos Authentication in Sun RPC},
  author={Carl H. Smith},
The purpose of this report is to describe the Kerberos authentication flavor for Sun RPC and its use for NFS Sun RPC [RFC1057] has an extensible authentication mechanism which allows new authentication flavors to be added from time to time. In SunOS 4.0 DES-based authen-tication was added (with the regrettable misnomer " secure RPC "). SunOS 5.0 added support for authentication based on Kerberos version 4 [Steiner]. The specification for DES-based Sun RPC authentication has been available for… Expand

Network Time Protocol (version 1) specification and implementation
The prototype system, which has been in regular operation in the Internet for the last two years, is described in an Appendix along with performance data which shows that timekeeping accuracy throughout most portions of the Internet can be ordinarily maintained to within a few tens of milliseconds, even in cases of failure or disruption of clocks, time servers or nets.
