Re: Kerberos DES encryption


According to my understanding the DES cipher strength for DES-CBC-MD5
is 56 bits. There is a distinct 3DES-CBC-MD5 but I'm not sure
Microsoft ever implemented it and I don't think it was ever widely
available for UNIX either.


Hmm... Really so... But as I can see newer versions of MIT Kerberos
supports RC4-HMAC, so one can configure Kerberos interoperability
without DES encryption...
