klist - list cached Kerberos tickets
klist [-e] [[-c] [-l] [-A] [-f]
[-s] [-a [-n]]] [-C] [-k [-t]
[-K]] [-V] [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
H Hardware authenticated
T Transit policy checked
O Okay as delegate
- 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
- Display the value of the encryption key in each keytab entry in the keytab
- 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.
klist uses the following environment variable:
- Location of the default Kerberos 5 credentials (ticket) cache, in the form
type:residual. If no type prefix is present, the
FILE type is assumed. The type of the default cache may determine
the availability of a cache collection; for instance, a default cache of
type DIR causes caches within the directory to be present in the
- Default location of Kerberos 5 credentials cache
- Default location for the local host's keytab file.
