The CS SSH Gateway, ssh.cs.brown.edu, has been updated to include generation of kerberos credentials. 

Impact to users: Users can continue to connect to the ssh gateway using existing ssh key pairs. Upon initial connection to the updated gateway you will be prompted to enter your Brown University password to generate your kerberos credentials. Users that have automated scripts that connect via ssh will need to manually connect once to generate the credentials, once generated the user will not be prompted again for 12 months. 

The kerberos credentials are needed for many services throughout the Department and will be required for mounting the filesystem in the near future. The ssh gateway address, ssh.cs.brown.edu, has not changed.
