Normally, a ticket is valid starting from the time you request it until it
expires.

However, there may be some cases where a user would like a ticket that is
valid some time in the future. For example, a user may wish to run a batch
job next week, but your maximum ticket lifetime is only one day.

To accommodate this need, Kerberos 5 introduced postdatable tickets. These
are tickets which are initially invalid, and have a starting time some time
in the future.

To use a postdatable ticket, the user must send it back to the KDC to have
it validated during the ticket's valid lifetime.
