I have checked what you told me.

What I would like to do is: having a user and a password, authenticate
against the kerberos server using a python script (not using kinit) and
then be able to access to the ticket that is returned back by kerberos.

User -----> Service  ------> Kerberos

The user sends user and password the first time to authenticate and then
the ticket.
I know that this can look a bit weird but in the environment that I'm
working on i need this.

Any idea how can I do this? I have checked many libraries in Python but
they don't seem like having what i need.

Thanks in advance

Yago
