The last time I was looking at this stuff.. wink wink.. . I found myself
pretty confused as to what (if any?) software worked with IPA. I mean it is
Kerberos so I am guessing you can secure telnet and all the other mostly
useless protocol Kerberos was designed to protect. I guess you can secure
web browsing with kerberos tickets, but again, is that really common?

I ended up with the ssh-public keys in LDAP.
http://code.google.com/p/openssh-lpk/. The reason I chose this was
1) I know LDAP
2) People were comfortable with SSH-KEYS

I still like it as a system actually. As to the IPA stuff, i could not
figure out IF/HOW I could make it work with SSH, and the software stack
needing it's own DNS server to control was a detraction.
