Introduction

Kerberos is a network authentication protocol that allows the network node to prove its identity over the network. It does so by using a Key Distribution Center (KDC) to ensure that the client identity is correct. In addition to security, Kerberos also supports single sign-on. This allows for granting users access to the database after signing in to the computer, thus providing simplicity for users.

Neo4j supports the use of Kerberos, using the Neo4j Kerberos Add-on described in this manual.
