Technical Summary This document describes a framework for defining encryption and checksum mechanisms for use with the Kerberos protocol, defining an abstraction layer between the Kerberos protocol and related protocols, and the actual mechanisms themselves. Several mechanisms are also defined in this document. Some are taken from RFC 1510, modified in form to fit this new framework, and occasionally modified in content when the old specification was incorrect. New mechanisms are presented here as well. Working Group Summary The KRB-WG Working Group came to consensus on this document. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Russell Housley for the IESG.
