Kerberos is not a program. It is used by other programs for security.
Kerberos is a network authentication protocol, designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications.
No, it is not a VPN. It is a protocol.
In the context of data communication, a protocol is a formal set of rules, conventions and data structure that governs how computers and other network devices exchange information over a network.
It is a language that is used when you are creating security applications.
You must have the Kerberos infrastructure set up in your deployment environment before you can use the Kerberos cipher suites.
Certainly - please see:
No, it does not need IDE like visual studio or java to run.
It is available in Window 7,8, 10 - it is built into the OS by Microsoft and it runs in the background.
It is not something that a user needs to access or use or configure unless they are an advanced programmer.
Kerberos is used by Windows to confirm a client's security credentials, it is part of the operating system - you cannot "find" it because it is a language, not a specific file.
The Kerberos authentication protocol provides a mechanism for mutual authentication between entities before a secure network connection is established.
The Kerberos protocol assumes that transactions between clients and servers take place on an open network where most clients and many servers are not physically secure, and packets traveling along the network can be monitored and modified at will.
