NAME


klist - list currently held Kerberos tickets

SYNOPSIS


/usr/bin/klist [-e]
[ [-c] [-f] [-s] [-a [-n]] [cache_name]]
[-k [-t] [-K] [keytab_file]]


DESCRIPTION


The klist utility prints the name of the credentials cache, the identity
of the principal that the tickets are for (as listed in the ticket file),
and the principal names of all Kerberos tickets currently held by the
user, along with the issue and expiration time for each authenticator.
Principal names are listed in the form name/instance@realm, with the '/'
omitted if the instance is not included, and the '@' omitted if the realm
is not included.


If cache_file or keytab_name is not specified, klist displays the
credentials in the default credentials cache or keytab files as
appropriate. By default, your ticket is stored in the file
/tmp/krb5cc_uid, where uid is the current user-ID of the user.

OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

-a
Displays list of addresses in credentials. Uses the
configured nameservice to translate numeric network
addresses to the associated hostname if possible.


-c [cache_name]
Lists tickets held in a credentials cache. This is
the default if neither -c nor -k is specified.


-e
Displays the encryption types of the session key and
the ticket for each credential in the credential
cache, or each key in the keytab file.


-f
Shows the flags present in the credentials, using the
following abbreviations:

a
Anonymous


A
Pre-authenticated


d
Post-dated


D
Post-dateable


f
Forwarded


F
Forwardable


H
Hardware authenticated


i
Invalid


I
Initial


O
Okay as delegate


p
Proxy


P
Proxiable


R
Renewable


T
Transit policy checked


-k [keytab_file]
List keys held in a keytab file.


-K
Displays the value of the encryption key in each
keytab entry in the keytab file.


-n
Shows numeric IP addresses instead of reverse-
resolving addresses. Only valid with -a option.


-s
Causes klist to run silently (produce no output), but
to still set the exit status according to whether it
finds the credentials cache. The exit status is 0 if
klist finds a credentials cache, and `1if it does
not, or if the local-realm TGT has expired.


-t
Displays the time entry timestamps for each keytab
entry in the keytab file.

KRB5CCNAME

UID of the user).

BUGS

performed.
