The Heimdal key hole logotype

The logotype

The logotype is a representation of the Kerberos protocol, the two parties (client and server) on either side of the trusted third party (KDC) that binds them together. The three parts of the logotype are in the shape of key holes since Kerberos uses cryptographic keys to protect the exchange.


We choose the logo because of it uniqueness and that is was easy to use as an application icon. It just not yet another round icon in your Applications folder.
