The mod_auth_kerb module available from modauthkerb.sf.net doesn't provide
the full kerberos authentication (it only supports password verification
against KDC). Recently I've joined the modauthkerb.sf.net project trying to
incorporate the changes needed to implement full kerberos support, but I'm
not sure when it's ready.

So, as for the PostgreSQL docs, if you don't have any other modules in your
mind, I'd suggest to include references to both these module:
  - mod_auth_kerb hosted by Sourceforge at modauthkerb.sf.net
  - mod_auth_gss_krb5 available from
You can also state these two modules are being integrated.
