kerbd - generates and validates Kerberos tickets for kernel RPC


/usr/sbin/kerbd [ -dg ]


kerbd is the usermode daemon which interfaces between kernel RPC and the Kerberos key distribution center (KDC) for the purposes of generating and validating Kerberos authentica- tion tickets. In addition, kerbd maps Kerberos user names into local user and group ids. By default, all groups that the requested user belongs to will be included in the grouplist credential. kerbd is automatically started when the system enters the multi-user state.


-d Run in debug mode. kerbd will output various informa- tion about Kerberos tickets being processed. -g Do not initialize the grouplist in the user credential when mapped from Kerberos' principal name. If this option is selected, only each user's group from the passwd entry will be included in mapped credentials.
