Greg,

Are you refering to sole Kerberos or are you just concerned about transport encryption? Your
statement somewhat irritates me.
Given that the HTTP traffic cannot be securely wrapped into the GSS content and nor the SASL
QOP can be set (like for LDAP), I would neglect that and still say TLS is not of your concern
but of mine or the users in general.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Mike
