Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I looked through the web, but my google-fu is failing me.

Is there a way to setup kerberos so that the when I login, it uses the local shadow file, but if the KDC is present (I'm on the home network), generate a TGT.

It would be great if I could use kerberos to authenticate to my NAS or my SSH servers.
