Title: LINCS Authentication Domain Interface (ADI) Logon protocol. (Preliminary specification and implementation guide)

Abstract

With the development of computer networking a need has arisen for users to interact with various computers and distributed operating systems from terminals remotely located from those systems. By remotely located terminals we mean those connected to networks using a different protocol family than the computer or distributed operating system being logged onto. Each terminal is said to belong to an authentication domain (NESD84). We express the above requirement as the desirability to provide inter-authentication-domain interactive services. The problems and attendant requirements of accomplishing inter-authentication-domain interactive services are discussed in (NESD84). Readers are assumed to be familiar with the concepts and protocol defined in that document. This specification defines the Authentication Domain Interface (ADI) Logon protocol for the LINCS distributed operating system that in conjunction with the Inter-Authentication-Domain Logon protocol gives users of LINCS terminals the ability to logon to hosts that do not support LINCS. Hereafter, the Inter-Authentication-Domain Logon Protocol is called the IAD Logon protocol for the sake of brevity. In addition, it gives users of terminals connected to networks that do not directly support LINCS the ability to logon and use LINCS distributed resources.
