KPASSWD(1)				   MIT Kerberos 			       KPASSWD(1)

NAME
       kpasswd - change a user's Kerberos password

SYNOPSIS
       kpasswd [principal]

DESCRIPTION
       The  kpasswd  command  is  used	to change a Kerberos principal's password.  kpasswd first
       prompts for the current Kerberos password, then prompts the user twice for the  new  pass-
       word, and the password is changed.

       If  the principal is governed by a policy that specifies the length and/or number of char-
       acter classes required in the new password, the new password must conform to  the  policy.
       (The  five  character  classes  are  lower case, upper case, numbers, punctuation, and all
       other characters.)

OPTIONS
       principal
	      Change the password for the Kerberos principal principal.  Otherwise, kpasswd  uses
	      the  principal  name from an existing ccache if there is one; if not, the principal
	      is derived from the identity of the user invoking the kpasswd command.
