I do agree that kerby could be seen as a weaker solution than a full
kerberos server.

Now, the thing is to fine a name that is not 'funny', but is not already
taken. Really, when it comes to security, all the names that come to
mind (like safeguard, safhaus, etc) are already used.

Add to that we need a name that is easy to remember, and convey the
right message. Or not : we can find a 'boring' name which is easy to
remember, and is not at all linked to kerberos : car manufactorer does
that all the time for their car (even if sometime it's not really great
: Audi just advertise a new car called e-tron, which literally means
'turd' in french ;-).

So let's start with some suggestion : what do you propose ?
