I use both (kerberos and ssh) and they each have advantages. Kerberos only
needs one initialization (one server and one shared secret per person &
per machine). If you have lots of folks who want encrypted support, it
scales much better.
ssh does better for just a few machines & users, or machines under
different administrative authorities. Plus it has scp, an encrypted copy
If your telnet clients have kerberos support, are you already part of a
kerberos realm? If so, why not just join it?
