secstored, secuser – secstore commands


auth/secstored [-R] [ -S servername ] [ -s address ] [ -x network ] [ -v ]

auth/secuser [ -v ] username


Secstored serves requests from secstore(1). By default it listens on port tcp!*!5356; the -s option specifies an alternative address. In the connection protocol, secstored describes itself as service secstore, but the -S option can specify a different servername. The -R option supplements the password check with a call to a RADIUS server, for checking hardware tokens or other validation. The -x option specifies an alternative network to the default /net. By default, secstored puts itself into the background; the -v option enables a verbose debugging mode that suppresses that.

Secuser is an administrative command that runs on the secstore machine, normally the authserver, to create new accounts and to change status on existing accounts. It prompts for account information such as password and expiration date, writing to /adm/secstore/who/user for a given secstore user. The directory /adm/secstore should be created mode 770 with owner or group allowing access to the user that runs secstored. The -v option makes the command chattier.

By default, secstored warns the client if no account exists. If you prefer to obscure this information, use secuser to create an account FICTITIOUS.
