Displaying the Principals in a Keytab File

On the host with the keytab file, run the ktutil command, read the keytab, then list the principals. Principals are also known as the keylist.

Note -  Although you can create keytab files that are owned by other users, using the default location for the keytab file requires root ownership.
Example 5-17  Displaying the Keylist (Principals) in a Keytab File

The following example displays the keylist in the /etc/krb5/krb5.keytab file on the denver host.

denver # /usr/bin/ktutil
ktutil: read_kt /etc/krb5/krb5.keytab
ktutil: list
slot KVNO Principal
