A simple logout button can be found in the remote widgets. The following animated GIF illustrates how the widget is used to insert a logout button into any page. After following the simple tutorial you can inspect the button properties to see how it is configured.

Note that a resource access grant _logout needs to exist for users to be able to log out. See this tutorial for an example on how to create Login/Logout Forms.
