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?


The current release is krb5-1.15.

Additional information on future releases:


We recommend that end users use MIT Kerberos software packages built by their operating system vendor if possible, and use support resources provided by their site or by their vendor. For those users (typically system administrators) who have a need to build MIT Kerberos from source code, we have some resources available on this wiki.

System administrators

We also recommend that most system administrators use MIT Kerberos software packages from their operating system vendor if possible.


Developers can include end users who have a need to customize the MIT Kerberos source code, or who would like to contribute patches for new features or for bug fixes.

We look forward to your contributions to K5Wiki and MIT Kerberos.
