Configure Vertica for Kerberos Authentication

Kerberos provides a strong cryptographic authentication against the devices which lets the client & servers to communicate in a more secured manner. It addresses network security problems.

Your system must have one or more Kerberos Key Distribution Centers (KDC) installed and configured. The KDCs must be accessible from every node in your Vertica Analytic Database cluster.

The KDC must support Kerberos 5 using GSS-API. For details, see the MIT Kerberos Distribution Page.
