By studying the Kerberos authentication scheme, an improved authentication scheme is raised, which is based on Dynamic Password Method. In the improved scheme, user’s password can be effectively protected, and the authentication is double between users and severs. Also, the scheme can resist jacking connection attack. The improved scheme is more secure and more practical than the original one.
