There might be legitimate applications that I am completely unaware of.
But with regard to gssapi authentication und usage of ssh as client
application by libvirt I think this is not necessary.

To obtain my credentials I would use an application like heimdal-kcm or
k5start or kinit per cronjob. These would need access to a keytab.
libvirt itself would only need to know about a keytab if there was a
internal mechanism in libvirt to obtain and renew credentials for its
own principal.

Kind regards!
