         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 nega-
                 tive 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 speci-
                 fied 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.
                 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
                 filename is STDIN, the password will be read from the standard
                 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.
                 Request an anonymous ticket (which means that the ticket will be
                 issued to an anonymous principal, typically "anonymous@REALM").
                 Parse principal as a enterprise (KRB5-NT-ENTERPRISE) name. Enter-
                 prise 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 "", and this option
                 is usually used with canonicalize so that the principal returned
                 from the KDC will typically be the real principal name.
                 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
         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.


                 Specifies the default credentials cache.
                 The file name of krb5.conf, the default being /etc/krb5.conf.
                 Specifies the Kerberos 4 ticket file to store version 4 tickets
