KCM(8)                      System Manager's Manual                     KCM(8)

     kcm - process-based credential cache for Kerberos tickets.

     kcm [--cache-name=cachename] [-c file | --config-file=file] [-g group |
         --group=group] [--max-request=size] [--disallow-getting-krbtgt]
         [--detach] [-h | --help] [-k principal |
         --system-principal=principal] [-l time | --lifetime=time] [-m mode |
         --mode=mode] [-n | --no-name-constraints] [-r time |
         --renewable-life=time] [-s path | --socket-path=path]
         [--door-path=path] [-S principal | --server=principal] [-t keytab |
         --keytab=keytab] [-u user | --user=user] [-v | --version]

     kcm is a process based credential cache.  To use it, set the KRB5CCNAME
     environment variable to `KCM:uid' or add the stanza

             default_cc_name = KCM:%{uid}

     to the /etc/krb5.conf configuration file and make sure kcm is started in
     the system startup files.

     The kcm daemon can hold the credentials for all users in the system.
     Access control is done with Unix-like permissions.  The daemon checks the
     access on all operations based on the uid and gid of the user.  The
     tickets are renewed as long as is permitted by the KDC's policy.

     The kcm daemon can also keep a SYSTEM credential that server processes
     can use to access services.  One example of usage might be an nss_ldap
     module that quickly needs to get credentials and doesn't want to renew
     the ticket itself.

     Supported options:

             system cache name

     -c file, --config-file=file
             location of config file

     -g group, --group=group
             system cache group

             max size for a kcm-request

             disallow extracting any krbtgt from the kcm daemon.

             detach from console

     -h, --help

     -k principal, --system-principal=principal
             system principal name

     -l time, --lifetime=time
             lifetime of system tickets

     -m mode, --mode=mode
             octal mode of system cache

     -n, --no-name-constraints
             disable credentials cache name constraints

     -r time, --renewable-life=time
             renewable lifetime of system tickets

     -s path, --socket-path=path
             path to kcm domain socket

             path to kcm door socket

     -S principal, --server=principal
             server to get system ticket for

     -t keytab, --keytab=keytab
             system keytab name

     -u user, --user=user
             system cache owner

     -v, --version
