Once the user account exists, we have to create a mapping between that user account and the service principal and create a keytab file. These steps can be combined using the Windows ktpass command, like so:


Integrated set of Django applications addressing authentication, registration, account management as well as 3rd party (social) account authentication

.. Most existing Django apps that address the problem of social authentication focus on just that. You typically need to integrate another app in order to support authentication via a local account.

This approach separates the worlds of local and social authentication. However, there are common scenarios to be dealt with in both worlds.
