KTKT_WARND(8) Maintenance Commands and Procedures KTKT_WARND(8)

ktkt_warnd - Kerberos warning daemon


ktkt_warnd is a daemon on Kerberos clients that can warn users when their Kerberos tickets are about to expire or renew the tickets before they expire. It is invoked by inetd when a ticket-granting ticket (TGT) is obtained for the first time, such as after using the kinit command. ktkt_warnd can be configured through the /etc/krb5/warn.conf file on the client. In warn.conf, you can specify that you be supplied notice, through syslog or terminal or mail, of ticket expiration or to renew the TGT.
