KDESTROY(1)			     General Commands Manual			      KDESTROY(1)

NAME
       kdestroy - destroy Kerberos tickets

SYNOPSIS
       kdestroy [-5] [-4] [-q] [-c cache_name]

DESCRIPTION
       The  kdestroy utility destroys the user's active Kerberos authorization tickets by writing
       zeros to the specified credentials cache that contains them.  If the credentials cache  is
       not  specified,	the  default  credentials cache is destroyed.  If kdestroy was built with
       Kerberos 4 support, the default behavior is to destroy both Kerberos 5 and Kerberos 4 cre-
       dentials.  Otherwise, kdestroy will default to destroying only Kerberos 5 credentials.

OPTIONS
       -5     destroy  Kerberos  5  credentials.   This  overrides  whatever the default built-in
	      behavior may be.	This option may be used with -4

       -4     destroy Kerberos 4 credentials.	This  overrides  whatever  the	default  built-in
	      behavior	may be.  This option is only available if kinit was built with Kerberos 4
	      compatibility.  This option may be used with -5

       -q     Run quietly.  Normally kdestroy beeps if it fails to destroy  the  user's  tickets.
	      The -q flag suppresses this behavior.

       -c cache_name
	      use  cache_name as the credentials (ticket) cache name and location; if this option
	      is not used, the default cache name and location are used.

	      The default credentials cache may vary between systems.  If the KRB5CCNAME environ-
	      ment variable is set, its value is used to name the default ticket cache.

       Most  installations recommend that you place the kdestroy command in your .logout file, so
       that your tickets are destroyed automatically when you log out.

ENVIRONMENT
       Kdestroy uses the following environment variables:

       KRB5CCNAME      Location of the Kerberos 5 credentials (ticket) cache.

       KRBTKFILE      Filename of the Kerberos 4 credentials (ticket) cache.

FILES
       /tmp/krb5cc_[uid]  default location of Kerberos 5 credentials cache ([uid] is the  decimal
			  UID of the user).

       /tmp/tkt[uid]  default  location of Kerberos 4 credentials cache ([uid] is the decimal UID
		      of the user).

SEE ALSO
       kinit(1), klist(1), krb5(3)

BUGS
       Only the tickets in the specified credentials cache are destroyed.  Separate ticket caches
       are  used  to  hold root instance and password changing tickets.  These should probably be
       destroyed too, or all of a user's tickets kept in a single credentials cache.
