Fermilab Strong Authentication Project

Mark Kaletka, Matt Crawford
 Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Speaker: Mark Kaletka

  Experience shows that a major source of computer security incidents is the compromise of re-usable passwords by clear text transmission over the network, or by weakly protected storage on disk on individual systems. The strong authentication project proposes to greatly reduce the risk of such compromise by implementing an authentication system based on the Kerberos v5 protocol developed at MIT. This protocol avoids transmission or storage of passwords. A secure portal with non-reusable passwords will provide access between those systems where only Kerberos access is permitted (the "strengthened realm") and those systems where other forms of access are permitted (the "untrusted realm"). A phased implementation is proposed, beginning with the Run II systems now under development.
