Create New Principal Profile Dialog Box

Getting there

From this dialog box, you can define the characteristics of a new principal profile.

The options include the following:

Principal full name

 

Displays the full name of the stored principal and realm.

Credentials storage

 

Storage name

Specify the storage area for the principal profile and credentials.

Storage media

 

File

Select to save the principal and its associated credentials to a file on your hard disk. The disadvantage to this option is that anyone who has access to this file can use your credentials until the ticket lifetime expires. If a person can guess your password, he or she can continue to use your credentials for access to kerberized services.

 

Memory

Select to save the principal and its associated credentials in memory. When you quit all of your kerberized applications, the credentials are deleted. During a session, the principal appears on a tab. If the principal is the default, the profile is saved in the Windows registry.

 

Hidden

Select to save the principal and its associated credentials in memory. You access hidden principal profiles from a single tab in the main window by entering the name of the hidden profile.
