Shishi is a (still incomplete) implementation of Kerberos 5, which can be used to authenticate users in distributed systems. It contains a library that can be used by application developers, and a command line utility for users. Shishi supports Kerberos authenticated telnet client/server, IMAP client/server (via GSSAPI), SSH client/server (via GSSAPI), rsh/rlogin client, and a PAM module for host security.
