Show Contents / Index / Search Specify the Default Storage Medium

Specify the storage medium and location you prefer for each new principal profile that you create. You can override this setting when you create a new profile.

To configure the default storage medium

  1. Start Kerberos Manager.
  • From the Configuration menu, choose Configure Realms.
  • Click the User Defaults tab.
  • Under Default storage media, select File to store your credentials in a file on your PC.


    Select Memory to keep credentials in memory until you quit all kerberized applications. (Memory is the most secure storage medium.)

    Note: To choose a hidden location in memory for credentials, when you create the profile, select Hidden from the Create New Principal Profile dialog box.
