Dear fellow NetBSDers

Is it possible, to login to a NetBSD Workstation and have it:

- authenticate me through Kerberos
- get userdata (uid,gid,home,shell, etc.) via ldap

without haveing a local account?

I've been reading alot of information the last two weeks but didn't
get a clear picture of how all those standards and technologies like
nss_ldap, GSSAPI, TLS, SASL or even PAM would play together.

I also couldn't find definitive information, about how or if
NetBSD supports pam/pam_ldap. 

Is there anyone who knows and can enlighten me?

Thanks very much in advance
