I think this kind of question belongs on the kerberos at mit.edu list,
since it's not specific to the MIT implementation. I've set the reply-
to header accordingly.
I don't understand the application you're proposing. Is it possible
that what you want is really a web server module like mod_auth_kerb?
I can't imagine why you would want a *browser* to check a user's
credentials because the user owns the browser and can run whichever
one he/she wants, including a custom-modified one.
For the normal usage scenarios the "extraction" process happens
automatically as part of some other task. If you can tell us what
you're trying to do, then perhaps we can point you at the right API's.
