 What is Heimdal?
 Heimdal is a free implementation of Kerberos 5. The goals are to:
    * have an implementation that can be freely used by anyone
    * be protocol compatible with existing implementations and, if not in
      conflict, with RFC 1510 (and any future updated RFC)
    * be reasonably compatible with the M.I.T Kerberos V5 API
    * have support for Kerberos V5 over GSS-API (RFC1964)
    * include the most important and useful application programs (rsh,
      telnet, popper, etc.)
    * include enough backwards compatibility with Kerberos V4
 Heimdal has the following features (this does not mean any of this
    * a stub generator and a library to encode/decode/whatever ASN.1/DER
    * a `libkrb5' library that should be possible to get to work with
      simple applications
    * a GSS-API library that should have all the important functions for
      building applications
    * Eric Young's `libdes'
    * `kinit', `klist', `kdestroy'
    * `telnet', `telnetd'
    * `rsh', `rshd'
    * `popper', `push' (a movemail equivalent)
    * `ftp', and `ftpd'
    * a library `libkafs' for authenticating to AFS and a program
      `afslog' that uses it
    * some simple test programs
    * a KDC that supports most things; optionally, it may also support
      Kerberos V4 and kaserver,
    * simple programs for distributing databases between a KDC master and
    * a password changing daemon `kpasswdd', library functions for
      changing passwords and a simple client
    * some kind of administration system
    * Kerberos V4 support in many of the applications.
