user with KerberosV.
The user argument is the user's name to be authenticated.
The service argument specifies which protocol to use with
program. The allowed protocols are login, challenge, and
challenge protocol is silently ignored but will report success as KerberosV
authentication is not challenge-response based).
The ignored argument is ignored for compatibility with other

back to the invoking
program whether or not the authentication was successful.
