This document provides background information regarding large-scale
Kerberos deployments in the industrial sector, with the aim of
identifying issues in the current Kerberos cross-realm authentication
model as defined in RFC 4120.

This document describes some examples of actual large-scale industrial
systems, and lists requirements and restrictions regarding authentication
operations in such environments.  It also identifies a number of 
requirements derived from the industrial automation field.  Although they 
are found in the field of industrial automation, these requirements are 
general enough and are applicable to the problem of Kerberos cross-realm 
operations.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Kerberos WG Working Group of the IETF.
