kf ā€” securely forward tickets

Synopsis

kf [-p port | --port=port] [-l login | --login=login] [-c ccache | --ccache=ccache] [-F | --forwardable] [-G | --no-forwardable] [-h | --help] [--version] host ...

Description

The kf program forwards tickets to a remote host through an authenticated and encrypted stream. Options supported are:

-p port, --port=port

port to connect to

-l login, --login=login

remote login name

-c ccache, --ccache=ccache

remote cred cache

-F, --forwardable

forward forwardable credentials

-G, --no-forwardable

do not forward forwardable credentials

-h, --help
--version

kf is useful when you do not want to enter your password on a remote host but want to have your tickets one for example AFS.

In order for kf to work you will need to acquire your initial ticket with forwardable flag, i.e. kinit --forwardable.

telnet is able to forward tickets by itself.
