Modify Principal Profile Dialog Box

Getting there

Use this dialog box to modify a principal profile that you've already created. (If you modify the name or location of the principal profile, Kerberos Manager deletes the original.)

The options include the following:

Principal full name

Principal

Specify the principal name you want to associate with this principal profile. This may be any user or client that the realm's KDC recognizes. Each principal has a unique name within a realm.

Realm

Specify the realm you want to associate with this principal profile from the list of realms that have been configured on your PC. A realm is a name given to a collection of Kerberos principals on a network.

The realm name is case sensitive usually uppercase. It is often similar to or the same as the domain name, for example, XYZ.MFG.COM.

Credentials storage

Storage name

Specifies the filename and folder where Kerberos Manager stores this principal profile.

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.
