GSSAPI Interoperability

The GSSAPI user authentication method for Secure Shell is defined in RFC 4462.

For Unix, GSSAPI offers an interoperable Kerberos authentication method. GSSAPI interoperates with standard Kerberos implementations that provide a GSSAPI mechanism. Additionally it allows Unix machines to login to Windows 2000 Active Directory domains.

GSSAPI offers integrated authentication for Windows 2000/2003 networks with Kerberos. This method utilizes domain accounts, since local accounts are not transferable across machine boundaries.
