Yes, in principle that should be possible. But I can't recommend to use
it for production.

I used and fixed the KDC server some month ago. I was able to setup the
KDC, to obtain a TGT using kinit and to obtain a service ticket to
access the LDAP server using GSSAPI from ldapsearch command line. I also
implemented GSSAPI authentication in Studio and used the ApacheDS KDC
for testing.

The latest dokumentation I wrote is [1]. But I have to warn you about
other documentation: either it is missing or outdated.

It would be nice if you want to use it for testing purpose and if you
could give feedback or even better if you could provide patches and

Kind Regards,
