Accommodating disjoint security realms is a challenge for
administrators who have to maintain duplicate data sets and for users
who need to recall multiple pass phrases, yet joining security realms
together can expose one realm to the weaknesses of the other. In this
paper, we compare the Kerberos and NetWare security realms, examine
methods of joining the two realms under a single login, and propose an
attractive single login design.
