As information processing continues to move toward an open systems
environment, the advantages of authentication and key distribution
systems over traditional passwords are becoming more and more evident.
In this timely guide for computer scientists, electrical engineers,
and networking specialists, author Rolf Oppliger explains and
compares the various authentication and key distribution
systems available today, including Kerberos, NetSP, SPX, TESS, and
SESAME. The book explores the cryptographic techniques used for
these systems - and shows how to use them to provide the best security
for your network.
