The Microsoft site indicates that Kerberos will still be there and will be improved [1].

Subject: Kerberos and Microsoft products ?


I have just been told by a company (name of company is anonymous) that
they were recently told by Microsoft, that in the next version of
Windows, Kerberos will be removed and replaced by something else
instead. This suggests that Active Directory will no longer be a
Kerberos server, and Windows will not use Kerberos to authenticate users
to domain controllers ?

My question is, has anybody else been told the same ? Is this a
missunderstanding, or based on fact ?

Thanks, Tim
