Friends of Penn State (FPS) Kerberos Configuration Change – February 23
On Tuesday, February 23, a configuration change will be made to FPS Kerberos servers during the ITS Maintenance Window (5:00 – 7:00 a.m.).
FPS password changes and FPS account creations will not be accepted while work is being completed. Services reliant upon the FPS Kerberos servers may experience intermittent outages with similar functions as well.
The upgrade will increase the number of encryption types supported within the FPS Kerberos realm (fops.psu.edu) and broaden the encryption options to Penn State computer systems, improving overall security.
The change is being tracked through Service Now – CHG0034850.
