Kerberos for Macintosh

Kerberos for Macintosh is an implementation of the Kerberos authentication system for Mac OS X. It is based on the MIT Kerberos implementation and provides Kerberos v5 and Kerberos v4 protocols, GSSAPI, a graphical authentication interface and accompanying API for acquiring Kerberos tickets, an in-memory ticket cache and KClient compatibility.

The current release of Kerberos for Macintosh is 6.0 and is included with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard).
