Kerberos Ticket Management

This section explains how to obtain, view, and destroy tickets. For an introduction to tickets, see How the Kerberos Service Works.

In Oracle Solaris, Kerberos is built into the login command. However, to obtain tickets automatically, you must configure the PAM service for the applicable login services. For more information, see the pam_krb5(5) man page.

The ssh command can be set up to forward copies of your tickets to the other hosts, so you do not have to explicitly ask for tickets to get access to those hosts. For security reasons, your administrator might prevent this. For more information, see the discussion about agent forwarding in the ssh(1) man page.

For information about ticket lifetimes, see Ticket Lifetimes.
