NAME
     kinit -- acquire initial tickets

SYNOPSIS
     kinit [--afslog] [-c cachename | --cache=cachename] [-f | --no-forwardable] [-t keytabname |
	   --keytab=keytabname] [-l time | --lifetime=time] [-p | --proxiable] [-R | --renew]
	   [--renewable] [-r time | --renewable-life=time] [-S principal | --server=principal]
	   [-s time | --start-time=time] [-k | --use-keytab] [-v | --validate] [-e enctypes |
	   --enctypes=enctypes] [-a addresses | --extra-addresses=addresses]
	   [--password-file=filename] [--fcache-version=version-number] [-A | --no-addresses]
	   [--anonymous] [--enterprise] [--version] [--help] [principal [command]]

DESCRIPTION
     kinit is used to authenticate to the Kerberos server as principal, or if none is given, a
     system generated default (typically your login name at the default realm), and acquire a
     ticket granting ticket that can later be used to obtain tickets for other services.

     Supported options:

     -c cachename --cache=cachename
	     The credentials cache to put the acquired ticket in, if other than default.

     -f --no-forwardable
	     Get ticket that can be forwarded to another host, or if the negative flags use,
	     don't get a forwardable flag.

     -t keytabname, --keytab=keytabname
	     Don't ask for a password, but instead get the key from the specified keytab.

     -l time, --lifetime=time
	     Specifies the lifetime of the ticket.  The argument can either be in seconds, or a
	     more human readable string like '1h'.

     -p, --proxiable
	     Request tickets with the proxiable flag set.

     -R, --renew
	     Try to renew ticket.  The ticket must have the 'renewable' flag set, and must not be
	     expired.

     --renewable
	     The same as --renewable-life, with an infinite time.

     -r time, --renewable-life=time
	     The max renewable ticket life.

     -S principal, --server=principal
	     Get a ticket for a service other than krbtgt/LOCAL.REALM.

     -s time, --start-time=time
	     Obtain a ticket that starts to be valid time (which can really be a generic time
	     specification, like '1h') seconds into the future.

     -k, --use-keytab
	     The same as --keytab, but with the default keytab name (normally
	     FILE:/etc/krb5.keytab).

     -v, --validate
	     Try to validate an invalid ticket.

     -e, --enctypes=enctypes
	     Request tickets with this particular enctype.

     --password-file=filename
	     read the password from the first line of filename.  If the filename is STDIN, the
	     password will be read from the standard input.

     --fcache-version=version-number
	     Create a credentials cache of version version-number.

     -a, --extra-addresses=enctypes
	     Adds a set of addresses that will, in addition to the systems local addresses, be
	     put in the ticket.  This can be useful if all addresses a client can use can't be
	     automatically figured out.  One such example is if the client is behind a firewall.
	     Also settable via libdefaults/extra_addresses in krb5.conf(5).

     -A, --no-addresses
	     Request a ticket with no addresses.

     --anonymous
	     Request an anonymous ticket (which means that the ticket will be issued to an anony-
	     mous principal, typically ``anonymous@REALM'').

     --enterprise
	     Parse principal as a enterprise (KRB5-NT-ENTERPRISE) name. Enterprise names are
	     email like principals that are stored in the name part of the principal, and since
	     there are two @ characters the parser needs to know that the first is not a realm.
	     An example of an enterprise name is ``lha@e.kth.se@KTH.SE'', and this option is usu-
	     ally used with canonicalize so that the principal returned from the KDC will typi-
	     cally be the real principal name.

     --afslog
	     Gets AFS tickets, converts them to version 4 format, and stores them in the kernel.
	     Only useful if you have AFS.

     The forwardable, proxiable, ticket_life, and renewable_life options can be set to a default
     value from the appdefaults section in krb5.conf, see krb5_appdefault(3).

     If  a command is given, kinit will set up new credentials caches, and AFS PAG, and then run
     the given command.  When it finishes the credentials will be removed.

ENVIRONMENT
     KRB5CCNAME
	     Specifies the default credentials cache.

     KRB5_CONFIG
	     The file name of krb5.conf, the default being /etc/krb5.conf.

     KRBTKFILE
	     Specifies the Kerberos 4 ticket file to store version 4 tickets in.
