lecture: TLS-KDH

Combining TLS with Kerberos

Logo tls kdh

This talk is about TLS-KDH. An initiative of ARPA2 that combines the TLS protocol with the Kerberos protocol. It enables Kerberos authentication for TLS and enforces Perfect Forward Secrecy by requiring a Diffie-Hellman key exchange for every session. During the talk the design, implementation and pros and cons of TLS-KDH will be discussed.

Kerberos authentication forms a welcomed alternative to traditional Public-Key Infrastructure-based authentication that is currently standard within the TLS protocol. The TLS-KDH project defines an Internet-Draft for integrating Kerberos with TLS. Furthermore, a reference implementation has been built into GnuTLS.
