It is rather simple and had been addressed lots of times. I really fail to
understand why people do keep re-inventing the wheel.

Give your admins crypto cards. Make sure that crypto-card service talks
GSS-API.
Have a GSS-API service provider
Configure all your systems to use GSSAPI interface.

So, why are we re-inventing the wheel again?

P.S. Dont claim that crypto cards are expensive. If you have 40000 Unix
machines, you can AFFORD to give everyone a crypto card.
