Actually, Kerberos IS a standard. It was invented at MIT in the early 80's. Not only is Kerberos used by Passport , but it is also used as the authentication mechanism whenever you log into a windows 2k/3k domain... Now, if you don't want to configure your workstations to participate in a windows domain, you can choose to run the Kerberos server on a non-Windows platform such as Linux, any Unix, Apple, any IBM platform (except OS/400...currently,,,).
