Judi, I don't know at this point how to automate destroying the tickets
on exit but I do want to point out that Sun does provides a package with
kerberized versions of remote apps like telnet, rsh, ftp, etc... (ssh
isn't kerberized in S9 but it is in S10) that can use the kerberos
credential to authenticate when connecting to a remote system instead of
sending the password in the clear.  Look for the SEAM 1.0.2 download on:
