Kerberos kinit supporting AFS and ticket refreshing

k5start can be used instead of kinit to obtain Kerberos tickets. krenew can be used instead of kinit -R to renew renewable tickets. They are intended primarily for use with automated or long-running processes and support some additional features useful for that purpose, such as running as a daemon and refreshing the ticket periodically, checking to see if an existing ticket has expired, or obtaining an AFS token along with the ticket by running an external program automatically.
Package version:4.1-2


kstart for Debian

If you also use AFS, k5start and krenew are compiled to run /usr/bin/aklog
to obtain an AFS token if requested with the -t option.  The openafs-krb5

kstart (3.14-2) unstable; urgency=low

  As of this release, k4start is no longer included since Debian no longer
  includes any Kerberos v4 libraries.  All sites still using Kerberos v4
  should place a high priority on migrating to Kerberos v5; v4 is no
  longer supported and has known significant security weaknesses.
