NAME

rpc.svcgssd – server-side rpcsec_gss daemon
 

SYNOPSIS

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

 

DESCRIPTION

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


-f


Runs
rpc.svcgssd

-r


If the rpcsec_gss library supports setting debug level,
