Hello, I am currently implementing a java client-server application. Its server is running on a linux machine and all users connecting to it are linux users.

Can I do it without implementing a Kerberos (for example) client. (The problem is that the client program cannot authenticate users directly (the client might run on their own computers at home) and I am forbidden to keep some private database of passowrds or keys (for Kerberos etc.).
