MIT Kerberos Consortium Events


The MIT Kerberos Consortium will hold its first Interoperability Testing Workshop March 30th - April 3rd, 2009. This event will be hosted by Microsoft Corporation on their Campus in Redmond, Washington.

MIT is organizing this interoperability event to provide a neutral environment for software companies and other organizations to test their Kerberos implementations and Kerberized applications. We expect a lively and productive week where engineers from participating organizations can succeed in testing and debugging their code together.

This event is open to all. Sponsors of the MIT Kerberos Consortium may attend this event at no cost. Other organizations who wish to participate will pay a fee to support this work. The amount of this fee will be determined individually, based on the complexity of the testing required, the size of the organization, and the number of attendees representing them.

The design of this event will be largely determined by who plans to attend, and what their testing needs will be. Therefore, we ask that you send us an indication of interest in participation as soon as possible, and a detailed testing proposal no later than January 30th, 2009.

This testing proposal should ideally include:

- software you would like to test,
- any issues you have encountered with interoperability,
- platforms against which you would like test,
- specific Kerberos features you would like to test,
- any unique configuration(s) that you require for testing,
- Access to external Internet and network/firewall requirements,
- Possible number of attendees from your organization,

To indicate your interest in attending or to submit your proposal, please contact Thomas Hardjono, Strategic Advisor to the MIT Kerberos Consortium, at hardjono@MIT.EDU.
