You do not need to. If you are using a rightid= for the current certificate,
just change it to use CN=*. But you can also leave out the rightid's if
you are just using one CA cert to sign all 5 of them (4 techs plus vpn server)

You really mean kerberos tickets? or you mean user/password ? Ifyou really
want user/passwd, you need to use XAUTH/ModeConfig, but there is no need
for this.
