I've made a note to update it.

When using the MSLSA cache, KfW attempts to acquire credentials via the
SSPI (LsaCallAuthenticationPackage with
KERB_RETRIEVE_TICKET_CACHE_TICKET).  For local-realm use, it should not
be necessary to retrieve the TGT.

If Credential Guard is blocking even the obtaining of service tickets by
applications (I'm not clear on whether this is true), then it's
conceivable that libgssapi_krb5 could use the LSA to obtain GSS tokens,
bypassing libkrb5 altogether.  At that point it might be simpler to use
a GSS shim to the Microsoft krb5 implementation, which I believe already
