According to one hit I got in Google, here is a bit of an explanation -

This class encapsulates the KRB-CRED message that a client uses to send its delegated credentials to a server. Supports delegation of one ticket only.

As I recall, delegation lets you forward credentials to another server or application downstream.

I don't know why they are there, not whether you can afford to throw them away.

Anyone know what the Kerberos krbcred_xxxx files are for in the /QIBM/UserData/OS400/NetworkAuthentication/creds/ folder are for on the IBM i?

We have thousands of files in here dating back to 2006 and I'm wondering why they are sticking around.
