Hi Tom,

   What does klist -ekt squid.keytab show ? Does it have an entry for AES ?
Did you use --enctypes 28 with msktutil as described here
http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples/Authenticate/Kerberos#Create_keytab ?

I recognized, that the values in the AD-computer-object (attribut
msDS-SupportedEncryption-Type) has to match the client-kerberos-ticket
(session-key) and the settings made in /etc/krb5.conf. On all three
parts, the aes-256....value must be set.
If not, there's not authentication possible.

Is it true, that always the strongest key (in this case probably aes-256)
