Kerberos authentication for local passwd users

We have a Kerberos domain and would like to use the local passwd file to determine who can log into a Fedora 18 machine. sssd appears to allow LDAP as an identity provider but not the local passwd file.

Has anyone managed to do this?

I know Kerberos support is configured because I can get a ticket if I use kinit from the machine.

This was fixed by adding "KerberosAuthentication yes" to /etc/ssh/shd_config and restarting the SSH daemon.
