Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What services and applications are generally used when setting up client server authentication? I'm looking for any information that could help me in this. From my understanding, Samba and LDAP is mainly for using Windows and Linux together, right? And how does Kerberos fit into that? I want to only use Linux.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
