What is Secure Unified Authentication?
Secure Unified Authentication is a solution-based methodology to provide secure (via Kerberos) unified (via central LDAP servers for identity management) authentication for enterprise IT environments.
Security is more important than ever, so using a ticket-based auth process instead of over-the-wire passwords is one way to ensure you have protected your business assets. With AES-256 encryption, you are using the strongest available enctype for Kerberos.
Ease of management is also critical to an ever changing IT landscape. LDAP for Identity Management makes user account management and NAS permissioning easier.
