Hi, As far as I understand it Kerberos service tickets are granted for a user to access a particular principle (host/service@REALM) and cannot be reused. Kerberos uses symmetric key cryptography so, if someone were able to access the memory of the machine, then they may indeed be able to snoop your user password although I am quite sure passwords are kept hashed in the Keytab.
If you are so worried that someone would go to the trouble hack the virtualisation layer and copy chunks of memory then you should really be reconsidering your use of cloud services. People hacking kerberos will be the least of your problems if you have data that is that sensitive on there. If you could point me to some documentation on the specific attack you are trying to mitigate that would be nice.
