Heimdal 7.4 is an implementation of Kerberos 5 (and some more stuff) originally developed in Sweden (which was important when the project started, less so now). It is freely available under a three-clause BSD style license.
Secure Endpoints, Inc. ported Heimdal to the Microsoft Windows operating system platform as a replacement for MIT's Kerberos for Windows which had not been updated in several years. The Secure Endpoints' Heimdal distribution consists of several components:

Secure Endpoints Inc. is the primary developer of Network Identity Manager (NetIdMgr). It allows end users to manage multiple network identities from within a single easy to use interface. Built upon the extensible Khimaira framework, NetIdMgr enables organizations to provide users with a single sign-on experience. A single Kerberos authentication can automatically derive credentials for a variety of other authentication mechanisms including AFS tokens and X.509 certificates. NetIdMgr also provides users with automatic credential renewal.
Network Identity Manager is distributed as the credential manager for MIT Kerberos for Windows.
Organizations wishing to support the on-going development of Network Identity Manager are encouraged to contact Secure Endpoints Inc. The road map contains a broad range of features and user interface improvements for which funding is required.
AFS Token Provider
Secure Endpoints Inc. has developed a plug-in supporting AFS token acquisition and renewal for multiple AFS cells from a single Kerberos v5 identity. The plug-in is distributed as part of OpenAFS for Windows.
Secure Endpoints Inc. is distributing a Kerberized Certificate Authority plug-in that can be used to automatically obtain X.509 client certificates when Kerberos v5 credentials are obtained or renewed. Version 2.4.0 is available for download. End-user documentation is also available. The KCA plug-in is bundled with a PKCS#11 module that exports certificates from the Windows Certificate Store to applications such as Mozilla's Firefox and Thunderbird.
The significant changes since version 2.0 include:
Secure Endpoints Inc. was the primary developer of OpenAFS.org's OpenAFS for Windows product. OpenAFS for Windows and OSX is now produced and distributed by AuriStor, Inc.
A contributor to OpenSSL since 1999 supporting the Microsoft Windows implementation and the Kerberos v5 cipher suite.
A participant in the development of Internet Standard protocols since 1999.
