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 particu‐
lar, 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 in the foreground and sends output to stderr
(as opposed to syslogd)

-v Increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple
times).

-r If the rpcsec_gss library supports setting debug level,
increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple
times).

-i If the nfsidmap library supports setting debug level, increases
the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple times).

-p Use principal instead of the default nfs/FQDN@REALM.

-n Use the system default credentials (host/FQDN@REALM) rather than
the default nfs/FQDN@REALM.
