Creating an MIT Kerberos provider

You can create an MIT Kerberos provider by obtaining the credentials for accessing a cluster through the Key Distribution Center (KDC) of the Kerberos realm. This process is also known as joining a realm. Thus when you create a Kerberos provider you also join a realm that you have previously created. You must be a member of the SecurityAdmin role to create an MIT Kerberos provider.

Using the web interface, you can perform the following tasks through a single workflow or perform each task individually before creating the provider.
  • Defining a realm
  • Defining a domain
  • Managing a service principal name (SPN)
