KLIST(1) MIT Kerberos KLIST(1)


klist - list cached Kerberos tickets


klist [-e] [[-c] [-l] [-A] [-f] [-s] [-a [-n]]] [-C] [-k [-i] [-t] [-K]] [-V] [-d] [cache_name|keytab_name]


klist lists the Kerberos principal and Kerberos tickets held in a credentials cache, or the keys held in a keytab file.


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.
If a cache collection is available, displays a table summarizing the caches present in the collection.
If a cache collection is available, displays the contents of all of the caches in the collection.
List tickets held in a credentials cache. This is the default if neither -c nor -k is specified.
Shows the flags present in the credentials, using the following abbreviations:

F    Forwardable
f    forwarded
P    Proxiable
p    proxy
D    postDateable
d    postdated
R    Renewable
I    Initial
i    invalid
H    Hardware authenticated
A    preAuthenticated
T    Transit policy checked
O    Okay as delegate
a    anonymous

Causes klist to run silently (produce no output). klist will exit with status 1 if the credentials cache cannot be read or is expired, and with status 0 otherwise.
Display list of addresses in credentials.
Show numeric addresses instead of reverse-resolving addresses.
List configuration data that has been stored in the credentials cache when klist encounters it. By default, configuration data is not listed.
List keys held in a keytab file.
In combination with -k, defaults to using the default client keytab instead of the default acceptor keytab, if no name is given.
Display the time entry timestamps for each keytab entry in the keytab file.
Display the value of the encryption key in each keytab entry in the keytab file.
Display the authdata types (if any) for each entry.
Display the Kerberos version number and exit.

If cache_name or keytab_name is not specified, klist will display the credentials in the default credentials cache or keytab file as appropriate. If the KRB5CCNAME environment variable is set, its value is used to locate the default ticket cache.


See kerberos(7) for a description of Kerberos environment variables.
