So how can we implement this locking? An idea we have is to rename a
principal after a number of not successful tries (e.g. add the instance
disabled to the principal name).

BTW: I tried to download the perl module Krb5-Kadm5 from the ftp server -
but the server seems to be dead. Is there another one to get it from?
Or does the Authen::Krb5::Admin module for MIT work with Heimdal as well?

Thanks in advance
