To use GSS-API for authentication in Solaris Secure Shell, the server must have GSS-API acceptor credentials and the client must have GSS-API initiator credentials. Support is available for mech_dh and for mech_krb5.
The client has initiator credentials for mech_dh if one of the following has been done:
The keylogin command has been run.
The pam_dhkeys module is used in the pam.conf file.
The client has initiator credentials for mech_krb5 if one of the following has been done:
The kinit command has been run.
The pam_krb5 module is used in the pam.conf file.
For the use of mech_dh in secure RPC, see Chapter 16, Using Authentication Services (Tasks). For the use of mech_krb5, see Chapter 21, Introduction to the Kerberos Service. For more information on mechanisms, see the mech(4) and mech_spnego(5) man pages.
