GSSD(8)			FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		       GSSD(8)

NAME
     gssd -- Generic Security Services Daemon

SYNOPSIS
     gssd [-d] [-h] [-o] [-v] [-s dir-list] [-c	file-substring]
	  [-r preferred-realm]

DESCRIPTION
     The gssd program provides support for the kernel GSS-API implementation.

     The options are as	follows:

     -d	     Run in debug mode.	 In this mode, gssd will not fork when it
	     starts.

     -h	     Enable support for	host-based initiator credentials.  This	per-
	     mits a kerberized NFS mount to use	a service principal in the
	     default Kerberos 5	keytab file for	access.	 Such access is
	     enabled via the gssname option for	the mount_nfs(8) command.

     -o	     Force use of DES and the associated old style GSS-API initializa-
	     tion token.  This may be required to make kerberized NFS mounts
	     work against some non-FreeBSD NFS servers.

     -v	     Run in verbose mode.  In this mode, gssd will log activity	mes-
	     sages to syslog using LOG_INFO | LOG_DAEMON or to stderr, if the
	     -d	option has also	been specified.	 The minor status is logged as
	     a decimal number, since it	is actually a Kerberos return status,
	     which is signed.

     -s	dir-list
	     Look for an appropriate credential	cache file in this list	of
	     directories.  The list should be full pathnames from root,	sepa-
	     rated by ':' characters.  Usually this list will simply be
	     "/tmp".  Without this option, gssd	assumes	that the credential
	     cache file	is called /tmp/krb5cc_<uid>, where <uid> is the	effec-
	     tive uid for the RPC caller.

     -c	file-substring
	     Set a file-substring for the credential cache file	names.	Only
	     files with	this substring embedded	in their names will be
	     selected as candidates when -s has	been specified.	 If not	speci-
	     fied, it defaults to "krb5cc_".

     -r	preferred-realm
	     Use Kerberos credentials for this realm when searching for	cre-
	     dentials in directories specified with -s.	 If not	specified, the
	     default Kerberos realm will be used.

FILES
     /etc/krb5.keytab  Contains	Kerberos service principals which may be used
		       as credentials by kernel	GSS-API	services.

EXIT STATUS
     The gssd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
