[Samba] SSH SSO without keytab file

I've setup a SambaAD server. I joined two Linux test hosts, a Windows test host and an SSH server to the domain. Here are my requirements:
1. I plan to use Samba accounts to authenticate the users for SSH.
2. Users shouldn't have to re-enter their passwords to connect to SSH.
The link at  gives some hints on setting up SSO and SSH. But that guide requires creation (and re-creation upon password change) of keytab files.
Is there a way to get SSO without using keytab files? My rather theoretical knowledge of Kerberos says that the user should get a TGT when logging in for a new session (using LightDM). Can't the same TGT be used by ssh client to request a ticket from Kerberos Authentication Server for SSH server?
This approach will save me from management and routine re-creation of keytab files.
