September Meeting: Kerberos Protocol (Tyler Johnson)

Date: Tuesday, September 20th
Time: 7:00pm
Location: UVU Business Resource Center

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW TIME! We’re going to start meeting at 7:00pm instead of 7:30pm

Tyler Johnson will be explaining the kerberos protocol and demonstrating it’s use in various environments. Kerberos is a computer network authentication protocol which works on the basis of tickets to allow nodes communicating over a non-secure network to prove their identity to one another in a secure manner. Used in many different Operating Systems and services, it is aimed at a client-server model and provides mutual authentication — both user and server verifiy each other’s identity. Kerberos builds on symmetric key cryptography and protects against eavesdropping and replay attacks.

The demonstration will mainly take place in a debian-based environment, which is recommended if you want to follow along.
