1.6 Applicability Statement

The Kerberos V5 protocol provides suitable authentication for clients and servers on a network that receives some level of management. The Kerberos V5 protocol is not applicable for stand-alone machines or among machines that do not have a common management infrastructure (for example, between clients and web servers on the Internet).

KILE is applicable to any application protocol that also requires integrated authorization and group management. These extensions are also applicable to any other use for which the Kerberos V5 protocol alone is suitable.
