Keeps Kerberos tickets always actual by automatically refreshing them using the saved password.

Kerberos is commonly used in corporate environments as a mechanism behind Single Sign-On (SSO) which allows to use intranet resources without entering password every time.


• Automatic Ticket Renewal — if a ticket expires (or disappears for any reason) the app will instantly get another one using the password saved in Keychain.

• If you choose not to save any password for the ticket, the app will still use passwordless renewal (`kinit -R`) when possible, keeping the ticket actual until maximum renewable lifetime of the ticket runs out.

• Changing Expired Password — displays notification when Kerberos password expires and allows to change it.

• Multiple tickets can be maintained.

NOTE: If you plan to delete tickets (`kdestroy` etc), make sure to disable autorenewal first, otherwise this app will just instantly reinstate them.

An Easy Solution to a Tedious Problem - Excellent app. Grew weary of always managing Kerberos tickets, and this simple app takes care of that for me. The only quirk is when the DHCP servers are slow on the network and/or 802.1X authentication is slow, the initial ticket-getting on login can fail or even if successful prevent 802.1X authentication from completing for some reason. Could be the network configuration at my job, though. This doesn’t always happen and I can use the app to get tickets manually, so it’s not a dealbreaker for me.
