 # Kerby Features
 
-Apache Kerby is a Java Kerberos binding. It provides a rich, intuitive and interoperable
implementation, library, KDC and various facilities that integrates PKI, OTP and token (OAuth2)
as desired in modern environments such as cloud, Hadoop and mobile.
+Kerby is an implementation of Kerberos V5 protocol in pure Java. It provides a rich, intuitive
and interoperable library, KDC and various facilities that integrate PKI, OTP and token (OAuth2)
as desired in modern environments such as cloud, Hadoop and mobile.
 Following features are (already) supported:
 
 * Kerberos libraries:
-    * KrbClient API
-    * KDC server API
-    * Kadmin API
+    * Client
+    * KDC server
+    * Kadmin
     * Credential cache and keytab utilities
 
 * Standalone KDC server
 
-* Supports for various back-ends:
-    * MemoryIdentityBackend
-    * JsonIdentityBackend
-    * LdapIdentityBackend
-    * ZookeeperIdentityBackend
-    * MavibotBackend.
+* Support for various backends:
+    * In-memory
+    * Mavibot (MVCC BTree)
+    * LDAP
+    * JSON
+    * Zookeeper
 
-* Embedable KDC server, that can be integrated in applications for production, unit and integration
tests.
+* Embeddable KDC server allows easy integration into products for unit testing or production
deployment.
 
 * FAST/Preauthentication framework, to allow popular and useful authentication mechanisms.

     * Netty based implementation for better throughput, lower latency.
 
 * Tools:
-    * kdcinit: Initialize and prepare all kinds of KDC side materials, like initializing
concrete back end, setting up necessary principals (tgs, kadmin) and etc.
-    * kadmin: Command-line interfaces to the Kerby administration system.
-    * kinit: Obtains and caches an initial ticket-granting ticket for principal.
-    * klist: Lists the Kerby principal and tickets held in a credentials cache, or the keys
held in a keytab file.

principals (tgs, kadmin) etc.

+    * klist: Lists the Kerberos principals and tickets held in a credentials cache, or the
keys held in a keytab file.
 
 * Support for JAAS, GSSAPI and SASL frameworks, allowing applications to leverage the authentication
mechanisms provided by Kerby.
