Authenticate ssh logins against kerberos / Active directory

Is it all possible to authenticate ssh users against a back-end kerberos server, more specifically Active directory.

I've noticed the kerberos config options in /etc/ssh........
# Kerberos options
#KerberosAuthentication no
#KerberosGetAFSToken no
#KerberosOrLocalPasswd yes
#KerberosTicketCleanup yes

But there's no kerberos realm to be set so I guess there's another file(s) somewhere?

Any feedback is welcome.
