The contents contain the client’s address, the valid time window (v), and the client/server session key (K c, s ), which will now be used for communication between the client and server. The server also checks the authenticator and, if that timestamp is valid, it provides the requested service to the client. The client messages to the server are § Ticket Tc, s = s, [c, a, v, K c, s ]Ks § Authenticator = [c, t, key] K c, s Kerberos Vulnerabilities Kerberos addresses the confidentiality and integrity of information.
