KAUTH(1)                   OpenBSD Reference Manual                   KAUTH(1)

     kauth - overworked Kerberos login program

     kauth [-n name] [-r remote user] [-t remote ticket file] [-h hosts...]
           [-l lifetime] [-f srvtab] [-c cell] [command ...]

     The kauth command obtains ticket granting tickets as well as AFS ticket
     and tokens. It also does a whole lot of other stuff.

     The following flags are supported:

     -n    Principal to get tickets for. If no other arguments are present
           this can be given without the -n flag.

     -h    Remote hosts to obtain tickets for. This works similar to the MIT
           Athena Kerberos 4 patchlevel 10 command rkinit(1),  however not in
           a compatible way. It requires that the remote host runs the
           kauthd(8),  server. The -r and -t flags are useful only with this

     -r    User on the remote host that should own the ticket file.

     -t    Ticket file on remote host.

     -l    Lifetime of tickets in minutes. A value of -1 is used for maximum
           ticket lifetime.

     -f    Srvtab to get service keys from. Default is /etc/kerberosIV/srvtab.
           This is mainly used with batch services that need to run authenti-
           cated. If any command is given, it will be executed in an authenti-
           cated fashion and when the program exits the tickets are destroyed.
           For long running jobs the tickets will be renewed.

     -c    AFS cell to get tokens for, default is your local cell.

     kinit(1),  kauthd(8)

     There is no help-switch.
