Right, but since ssh daemon runs as root, there's no place I can hide the
iprop keytab from him. I try not to run daemons as root, but you managed
to pick one of the three daemons I *do* run as root: heimdal, ssh and

Which log is this, the binary or the text log? Debian keeps the binary
log (the one replayable by replay_log) in /var/lib/heimdal-kdc/log and
Heimdal also logs through syslog to someplace in /var/log. I assume you
mean the former.

If I assume correctly, then yes, I did. If I assume incorrectly, then no,
I didn't.

About a second after starting iprop slave, the binary log file is
970370 bytes long (and still growing as I write this).

And the non-binary log in /var/log again contains huge numbers of "Entry
already exists" and "Decrypt integrity failed" -messages.

This is on the slave, talking to itself to get a ticket and yes, it is an
ordinary user kinit, but the password supplied was certainly correct.

I do. (Though I thought I would not need it: I thought iprop decrypts the
data it sends, uses a session key to re-enrypt the data for transit over
the wire, slave decrypts and again re-encrypts before it puts it in the
DB. Otherwise, if I had an unencrypted DB on disc, iprop would transfer
the data unencrypted over the wire. Of course iprop could just encrypt
the already encrypted data... I really don't know, I'm guessing.)

So I won't. =) Thanks for warning me!
