rpc.svcgssd(8)           System Manager's Manual          rpc.svcgssd(8)

NAME         top

       rpc.svcgssd - server-side rpcsec_gss daemon

SYNOPSIS         top

       rpc.svcgssd [-n] [-v] [-r] [-i] [-f] [-p principal]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The rpcsec_gss protocol gives a means of using the gss-api
       generic security api to provide security for protocols using rpc
       (in particular, nfs).  Before exchanging any rpc requests using
       rpcsec_gss, the rpc client must first establish a security
       context with the rpc server.  The linux kernel's implementation
       of rpcsec_gss depends on the userspace daemon rpc.svcgssd to
       handle context establishment on the rpc server.  The daemon uses
       files in the proc filesystem to communicate with the kernel.

OPTIONS         top

       -f     Runs rpc.svcgssd in the foreground and sends output to
              stderr (as opposed to syslogd)

       -v     Increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified
              multiple times).

       -r     If the rpcsec_gss library supports setting debug level,
              increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified
              multiple times).

       -i     If the nfsidmap library supports setting debug level,
              increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified
              multiple times).

       -p     Use principal instead of the default nfs/FQDN@REALM.

       -n     Use the system default credentials (host/FQDN@REALM)
              rather than the default nfs/FQDN@REALM.

CONFIGURATION FILE         top

       Some of the options that can be set on the command line can also
       be controlled through values set in the [svcgssd] section of the
       /etc/nfs.conf configuration file.  Values recognized include:

       principal
              If set to system this is equivalent to the -n option.  If
              set to any other value, that is used like the -p option.
