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

NAME
     gssd -- Generic Security Services Daemon

SYNOPSIS
     gssd [-d] [-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.

     -o		 Force use of DES and the associated old style GSS-API ini-
		 tialization 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
		 messages 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 Ker-
		 beros 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,
		 separated by ':' characters.  Usually this list will simply
		 be "/tmp".  Without this option, gssd assumes that the	cre-
		 dential cache file is called /tmp/krb5cc_<uid>, where <uid>
		 is the	effective 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
		 specified, it defaults	to "krb5cc_".

     -r	preferred-realm
		 Use Kerberos credentials for this realm when searching	for
		 credentials in	directories specified with -s.	If not speci-
		 fied, 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.
