Available Mechanisms in GSS-API

The current implementation of GSS-API works with the following mechanisms: Kerberos v5, Diffie-Hellman, and SPNEGO. For more information on the Kerberos implementation, see Chapter 21, Introduction to the Kerberos Service, in System Administration Guide: Security Services for more information. Kerberos v5 should be installed and running on any system on which GSS-API-aware programs are running.
