NAME

       kpasswd - change a user's Kerberos password

SYNOPSIS

       kpasswd [principal]

DESCRIPTION

       The  kpasswd  command  is  used  to change a Kerberos principal's password.  kpasswd first
       prompts for the current Kerberos password,  then  prompts  the  user  twice  for  the  new
       password, and the password is changed.

       If  the  principal  is  governed  by  a  policy that specifies the length and/or number of
       character classes required in the new password, the  new  password  must  conform  to  the
       policy.  (The five character classes are lower case, upper case, numbers, punctuation, and
       all other characters.)

OPTIONS

       principal
              Change the password for the Kerberos principal principal.  Otherwise, kpasswd  uses
              the  principal  name from an existing ccache if there is one; if not, the principal
              is derived from the identity of the user invoking the kpasswd command.

ENVIRONMENT

       See kerberos(7) for a description of Kerberos environment variables.
