Kerberos

Kerberos is a network authentication protocol that verifies both the identity of the user that is requesting authentication as well as the server providing the requested authentication, also known as mutual authentication. The Kerberos authentication mechanism issues tickets for accessing network services. These tickets contain encrypted data, including an encrypted password, that confirms the user's identity to the requested service.
