Re: OpenLDAP and Kerberos 5?

OpenLDAP supports the SASL/GSSAPI mechanism (via Cyrus SASL) for
Kerberos authentication.  See the Admin Guide for information
regarding this.

Some Kerberos KDCs, such as the Heimdal KDC, support using of
an LDAP server as their underlying database.  Discussion of how
to use such is a topic more suited to a list supporting the
specific KDC.
