Abstract Abstract
This document defines a new function for the GSS-API which allows This document defines a new function for the GSS-API which allows
applications to store delegated (and other) credentials in the applications to store delegated (and other) credentials in the
implicit GSS-API credential store. This is needed for GSS-API implicit GSS-API credential store. This is needed for GSS-API
applications to use delegated credentials as they would use other applications to use delegated credentials as they would use other
credentials. credentials.
