This document describes how Kerberos Version 5 [RFC 4120] is used with the Telnet protocol [RFC 854]. It describes an Telnet Authentication suboption to be used with the Telnet Authentication option [RFC YYYY]. This mechanism can also used to provide keying material to provide data confidentiality services in conjunction with the Telnet Encryption option [RFC 2946]. This document updates a previous specification of the Telnet Authentication Kerberos 5 method, RFC 2942 [4], to allow Kerberos 5 Telnet authentication to be used in conjunction with the START_TLS option [RFC XXXX].
