This function requests KDC for an initial credentials for client using password . If password is NULL, a password will be prompted for using prompter if necessary. If in_tkt_service is specified, it is parsed as a principal name (with the realm ignored) and used as the service principal for the request; otherwise the ticket-granting service is used.
