Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. It is designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography. While Mac OS X ships with most parts of Kerberos for Macintosh, it does not include support for CFM-based Kerberos-using applications (such as Oracle Calendar), and the GUI Kerberos management application is in a hard-to-find location.

The Mac OS X Kerberos Extras installer will install the Kerberos CFM support library and make an alias to the GUI Kerberos Management application in /Applications/Utilities (the Kerberos application ships in /System/Library/CoreSevices ). By default the installer will also install an MIT configuration file ( if one does not already exist, or you can choose a custom install to force install a new (MIT-based) configuration file.

In addition the Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard), and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) Kerberos Extras will also modify your ssh configuration to allow the use of Kerberos by default. Apple disabled Kerberized ssh in 10.4.9 (Tiger) by default to solve performance problems on networks without DNS.

There is an issue with one of the Eudora 5.1.1 plug-ins that causes Eudora to fail to launch after you've installed the Mac OS X Kerberos Extras. The best way to fix this is to upgrade to Eudora 5.2 or later.
