Limited Capacity seats available

"Kerberos has long been a demand of the enterprise environment, and there's a
lot for security-conscious developers to like that we often don't talk about.

I'll touch on what makes Kerberos nice from a security perspective, but the
focus of the talk will be on enablement: how can you use these cool features
in your software?

Some features, time permitting, that will be discussed include: OTP and second
factor support, public key authentication, SAML/SPNEGO and web logins, python
bindings, and, of course, the more traditional authentication/encryption
routes. Expect canned demos!

Very basic familiarity with Kerberos is expected (i.e., the first two
paragraphs of the Wikipedia article), but this talk won't go very far into how
Kerberos works internally."
