Smartcard Integration with Kerberos V5

Naomaru Itoi and Peter Honeyman, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor


We describe our design and implementation of smartcard integration with Kerberos V5. Authentication is among the most important applications for smartcards and is one of the critical requirements for computer security. By augmenting Kerberos V5 with tamper-resistant hardware, we enhance the security of Kerberos V5 and offer a potential "killer application" leading to wider adoption of smartcard technology.
