The ~/.k5login (~/.klogin in the V4 world) is a list of the Kerberos
principals authorized to login to your account. It's stored in the home
directory of the user and should of course not be writable by anybody else.
This file is consulted by a lot of different programs (rlogind, rshd,
telnetd, ftpd, su, ...) to figure out if the authenticated user has the
right to do something as a particular user.
