As our recent kerberos issues get resolved (it was actually a DNS 
problem), I've been told that the system people would really prefer that 
we use Shibbolith (sp?), which has been adopted by a number of 
universities in our state, for authentication.

(1) Any thoughts on the matter?

(2) Presumably, this can be done with local authentication.

(3) This might also be implemented as a larger scale solution (more like 
kerberos) if it is thought to be a global enough system.
