=head1 NAME

Authen::Krb5::Easy - Simple Kerberos 5 interaction


 use Authen::Krb5::Easy qw{kinit kexpires kexpired kcheck kdestroy};
 kinit("keytab", "someone") || die kerror();

 # how long until the ticket expires?
 $time_left = kexpires();

 # has the ticket expired?
 	print "expired!\n";

 # check for expiration and get new ticket if expired
 kcheck("keytab", "someone") || die kerror();
 # destroy current ticket


This allows simple access to getting kerberos 5 ticket granting tickets using a keytab file.


All functions will need to be imported.

=over 4

=item kinit($keytab, $principle)

This uses the keytab file specified in $keytab and uses it to acquire a ticket granting ticket for $principle. This is functionally equivalent to system("kinit -k -t $keytab $principle"), but is done directly through the kerberos libraries.

=item kdestroy()

Erases all credentials in the ticket file.

=item kerror()

returns an error string ended with a "\n" that describes what error happened.

=item kcheck($keytab, $principle)

Checks to see if the ticket has expired, and if it has, get a new one using $keytab and $principle.

=item kexpires()

Returns the seconds since the epoch that the ticket will expire or 0.

=item kexpired()

Returns true if the ticket has expired.
