In current IT world, data is huge. In order to handle this huge amount of data, traditional databases were incapable. This problem is solved using the large databases like Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). But even if you use this file system. There are some issues like security. Do you think security is an issue? Yes, security is an issue in the current It world.Because, the data which is being transferred across the network is not a homogenous data, instead, it is a heterogeneous data. Today, in this article, ill you know How security is achieved using KERBEROS.
This heterogeneous data contains various forms of data like text information, image and some other confidential data like passwords.While transferring this confidential information, there is a chance of attacking the file by an unknown person over the internet. In this scenario How do the transfer the security files over the internet? The solution is the use of KERBEROS protocol.

Before going to know How Security is achieved using KERBEROS let me introduce the basic terminology in network security.
It is the period of time where some particular event happens over there. This session may usually for few hours. This word is particularly used to convey that particular task will be complete over that time.
As we discussed earlier, transferring confidential over a network is not good.So to overcome this problem, we usually, encrypt the data, to transfer over the network. Basically, Encryption is the process of the changing the data from its normal form. The advantage of this encryption is that the hacker that, this is the original of data. But it is actually coded in a separate form.This coding sequence will be known only to the end user (receiver )
It is the opposite form of encryption. It decrypts (converting the coded data into original form) the data in order to know the exact confidential data sent by the sender
It is the number generated by the server for the purpose of identifying itself to the client (or) end user. This is usually generated, to notify the receiver, that the data is sent by the authorized person only. Each ticket is generated for each session.
Now let me take you to the main concept.
How security is achieved using KERBEROS:
Hope my dear readers, you got a basic idea regarding the basic terminology in networking. Now I’ll let you know the complete picture of How data is transferred over the network using Kerberos and How security is achieved using KERBEROS.
Basically, this KERBEROS consists of two main components
Initially, when a client (or) an end user wants to access the data over the network. the person is not authorized to access the data immediately.
Finally, client and servers were authenticated and whatever the authentication happens between them will always be encrypted using session key S2.
