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 kernel rpc and the
Generic Security Service Application Program Interface (GSS-API) to
generate and validate GSS-API security 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.

NOTES


The following signal has the specified effect when sent to the server
process using the kill(1) command:

SIGHUP
gssd rereads the gsscred.conf(4) options.


When one of the mechanisms being used is Kerberos, then the gssd process
must be restarted after adding or changing the resolv.conf(4) file.


The gssd service is managed by the service management facility, smf(5),
under the service identifier:

svc:/network/rpc/gss:default


Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or
requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(1M). Responsibility for
initiating and restarting this service is delegated to inetd(1M). Use
inetadm(1M) to make configuration changes and to view configuration
information for this service. The service's status can be queried using
the svcs(1) command.
