Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-01-27 16:34:09 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #153257 +++

The pam_krb5 module available on Sourceforge (a fork from the pam_krb5 module
used in RedHat) honors the 'refresh_creds' option, which enables an application
such as xscreensaver to get new credentials for the user without creating a new
credentials cache.

This is an invaluable element of pam_krb5, as it would allow us to integrate the
refreshing of credentials with the screen saver, and virtually eliminates the
need for user education regarding Kerberos tickets, their expiry, etc.
