kredentials(1) KDE system tray applet to monitor and update authentication


Kredentials monitors the state of the user's Kerberos and AFS authentication tokens. It renews Kerberos tickets every hour up to the maximum renewable lifetime of the tickets and informs the user when the renewable lifetime is reached. Each time Kerberos tickets are obtained, aklog(1) is run to obtain new AFS tokens.


Inform the user via a KDE "passive dialog" each time tickets are renewed.
Don't run aklog to get new AFS tokens when renewing Kerberos creds.


There aren't really any major bugs, but the feature list can and should be expanded. The command line options should be migrated to GUI-configurable settings. The ticket renewal interval should be user-configurable.
