My first impression about the fix:
1. Do you want to update getKeys() comments about isInitiator value?

2. It seems that when isInitiator is true, getKeys() should throw exception if the state is not OK, right? If so, it looks like that the update of getKeys() will not throw ISE if the state is INIT. Does INIT state is enough in such case?

Now if an acceptor has isInitiator=false, the OK state will never be reached. In most cases, an acceptor uses a keytab so getKeys() is not called. However, if it uses username/password (most likely in a peer-to-peer case and the acceptor chooses not to login), getKeys() is needed and an exception is thrown.
