How can I configure Rstudio to use Kerberos authentication with Revolution R?

Authentication is only support in Rstudio Server Professional. If you are using Rstudio Server Pro you can use the PAM session API to initializeand destroy Kerberos tickets:
  1. Login to Rstudio with your Unix credentials(using PAM authentication)
  2. Open a shell in Rstudio(via 'Tools ---> Shell' menu item in RStudio)
  3. Get Kerberos ticket(issue the command: 'kinit <user>" - this should prompt you for the users Kerberos password.
  4. Now you should have a Kerberos ticket for that user until the lease expires(usually 24 hours). Commands that you execute using Rstudio will have a valid Kerberos credential.
