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
                 initialization 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
                 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,
                 separated 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 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
                 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.
