comment Using a remote VPS for Active Directory purposes
@billc.cn $129.50USD/yr isn't too expensive, particularly when you factor in running costs and data redundancy. Note that it's solely for home personal use (~10 users at the maximum), and mainly just for authentication requests. I do have a spare laptop that is currently being used as a minecraft server so I could look into joining the two. Thanks for you input.

Basically, I wasn't 100% sure about the security sides of things and I wanted a more clear view before I went ahead (other than "surely Kerberos is secure enough")

Doesn't Kerberos handle the security side of things? That plus encrypting the disk should cover everything. Running a VM doesn't work that well as I need gpu acceleration on the desktop and having the desktop dependant on a VM it runs is asking for trouble.
