Kerberos 5 authentication with integrity checking (krb5i)
Krb5i uses checksums to verify the integrity of each NFS message transferred between client and server. This is useful both for security reasons, for example to ensure that data has not been tampered with, and data integrity reasons, for example to prevent data corruption when using NFS over unreliable networks.
Kerberos 5 authentication with privacy checking (krb5p)
Krb5p uses checksums to encrypt all the traffic between client and the server. This is more secure and also incurs more load.
128-bit and 256-bit AES encryption
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is an encryption algorithm for securing electronic data. Data ONTAP now supports AES with 128-bit keys (AES-128) and AES with 256-bit keys (AES-256) encryption for Kerberos for stronger security.
SVM-level Kerberos realm configurations
SVMadministrators can now create Kerberos realm configurations at theSVMlevel. This means thatSVMadministrators no longer have to rely on the cluster administrator for Kerberos realm configuration and can create individual Kerberos realm configurations in a multi-tenancy environment.
