NAME

gssd - generates and validates GSS-API tokens for kernel RPC

SYNOPSIS

/usr/lib/gss/gssd

DESCRIPTION

gssd is the user mode daemon that operates between the ker- nel rpc and the Generic Security Service Application Program Interface (GSS-API) to generate and validate GSS-API secu- rity tokens. In addition, gssd maps the GSS-API principal names to the local user and group ids. By default, all groups that the requested user belongs to will be included in the grouplist credential. gssd is invoked by the Internet daemon inetd(1m) the first time that the kernel RPC requests GSS-API services.

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. >0 An error occurred.
