    Getting started with Kerberos?


      I have a webapp that runs behind an Apache server that takes care of kerberos authentication (with the possible help of the Weblogic apache module).

      I need to delegate this authentication to a webservice used by the webapp. Can anybody here suggest what to read to get started with this. It seems like a complex topic, and I could really use some good resources to get an overview of how to use JGSS in this regard.

      Necesarry configuration files, API usage etc. is what I'm looking for.

          It kind of sounds like a servlet filter would help accomplish your goal...?

          Take a look at the [http://spnego.sourceforge.net|http://spnego.sourceforge.net] project.

          The idea is to turn off Apache authentication so that the SPNEGO Http Servlet Filter can do it for you.
