And to get back to the original question. When you have trusts and HBAC
why do you need SSH keys?
They do not add any value and become a burden to manage.
You can use you Kerberos ticket to access systems you need and systems
would check if you are allowed to access so I fail to see the need for
the SSH in this case at all. What am I missing?
