kinit — acquire initial tickets
|kinit|| [--afslog] [-c |
kinit is used to authenticate to the Kerberos server as
principal, or if none is given, a system generated default (typically your login name at the default realm), and acquire a ticket granting ticket that can later be used to obtain tickets for other services.
The credentials cache to put the acquired ticket in, if other than default.
- -f --forwardable
Obtain a ticket than can be forwarded to another host.
- -F --no-forwardable
Do not obtain a forwardable ticket.
Don't ask for a password, but instead get the key from the specified keytab.
Specifies the lifetime of the ticket. The argument can either be in seconds, or a more human readable string like ‘1h’.
- -p, --proxiable
Request tickets with the proxiable flag set.
- -R, --renew
Try to renew ticket. The ticket must have the ‘renewable’ flag set, and must not be expired.
The same as --renewable-life, with an infinite time.
The max renewable ticket life.
Get a ticket for a service other than krbtgt/LOCAL.REALM.
Obtain a ticket that starts to be valid
time(which can really be a generic time specification, like ‘1h’) seconds into the future.
- -k, --use-keytab
The same as --keytab, but with the default keytab name (normally
- -v, --validate
Try to validate an invalid ticket.
- -e, --enctypes=
Request tickets with this particular enctype.
read the password from the first line of
filename. If the
STDIN, the password will be read from the standard input.
Create a credentials cache of version
- -a, --extra-addresses=
Adds a set of addresses that will, in addition to the systems local addresses, be put in the ticket. This can be useful if all addresses a client can use can't be automatically figured out. One such example is if the client is behind a firewall. Also settable via
- -A, --no-addresses
Request a ticket with no addresses.
Request an anonymous ticket (which means that the ticket will be issued to an anonymous principal, typically “anonymous@REALM”).
Parse principal as a enterprise (KRB5-NT-ENTERPRISE) name. Enterprise names are email like principals that are stored in the name part of the principal, and since there are two @ characters the parser needs to know that the first is not a realm. An example of an enterprise name is “email@example.com@KTH.SE”, and this option is usually used with canonicalize so that the principal returned from the KDC will typically be the real principal name.
Gets AFS tickets, converts them to version 4 format, and stores them in the kernel. Only useful if you have AFS.
renewable_life options can be set to a default value from the appdefaults section in krb5.conf, see krb5_appdefault(3).
command is given, kinit will set up new credentials caches, and AFS PAG, and then run the given command. When it finishes the credentials will be removed.
Specifies the default credentials cache.
The file name of
krb5.conf, the default being
kdestroy(1), klist(1), krb5_appdefault(3), krb5.conf(5)
