K5Wiki is a wiki supporting the development of MIT Kerberos, a reference implementation of the Kerberos network authentication protocol.

This wiki serves both as a place for coordination of development efforts on MIT Kerberos and as a means for potential contributors and other interested people to become more involved with MIT Kerberos development. This wiki does not focus on the needs for the average end user, but it may nevertheless contain information that is useful to advanced users, such as system administrators who wish to make customizations.

What can this wiki do for you?
