NAME
       /usr/local/lib/security/pam_krb5/pam_krb5_cchelper  -  Credential cache
       helper

SYNOPSIS
       pam_krb5_cchelper [-c|-u|-d] [ccname] [uid] [gid]

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_krb5.so module uses pam_krb5_cchelper to	 create,  update,  and
       remove credential caches.

ARGUMENTS
       -c|-u|-d
	      A	 flag indicating whether the helper is expected	to create, up-
	      date, or destroy a ccache.  When creating	a ccache,  the	ccname
	      argument	should	be a name or a pattern ending in XXXXXX.  When
	      updating or deleting a ccache, the ccname	argument should	be the
	      name of an extant	ccache.

       ccname A	  credential   cache   name   or  name	pattern	 of  the  form
	      TYPE:/tmp/foo or TYPE:/tmp/fooXXXXXX.

       uid    An optional numeric UID which the	helper will attempt to	switch
	      to  before  creating a ccache.  The helper continues in its task
	      if the attempt fails.

       gid    An optional numeric GID which the	helper will attempt to	switch
	      to  before  creating a ccache.  The helper continues in its task
	      if the attempt fails.

OPERATION
       The helper will read contents from its standard input.
       If input	of suitable length is not read,	the specified credential cache
       is deleted.
       If  input  of  suitable length is read, a temporary file	is created and
       the input is stored to the file.	 If TYPE is FILE, the file's name will
       be  based on the	pattern	and the	name of	this new credential cache will
       be printed.  If TYPE is not FILE, a new credential cache	will  be  cre-
       ated  and  the contents of the temporary	file will be treated as	a cre-
       dential cache whose contents will be copied  into  the  new  credential
       cache, whose name will be printed.

FILES
       /usr/local/lib/security/pam_krb5.so

BUGS
       Probably, but let's hope	not.  If you find any, please file them	in the
       bug database at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ against the "pam_krb5" com-
       ponent.
