The ticket is a physical file or "key" that is put into the home
directory of the
Perforce user ( ~/.p4tickets on *NIX ) so it is persistent until it's
encoded time expires.
Issuing a 'p4 logout' erases the ticket.
Since p4 logins are only valid on the current host ( unless the -a
option is used ) and
only for the current user the ticket is as safe as security on that
