According to Oracle, trace file is generated from RMAN.exe. To disable it use the following event.
For more information refer to Doc ID 28390273.8

ALTER SYSTEM SET EVENT='trace[krb.*] disk disable, memory disable' scope=spfile;

Note: Doc ID 28390273.8 mentions that the fix is included in (Oct 2018) Database Release Update.
