System Administration Guide: Security Services

Observing Mapping from GSS Credentials to UNIX Credentials

To be able to monitor the credential mappings, first uncomment this line from the /etc/gss/gsscred.conf file.


Next instruct the gssd service to get information from the /etc/gss/gsscred.conf file.

# pkill -HUP gssd

Now you should be able to monitor the credential mappings as gssd requests them. The mappings are recorded by syslogd, if the syslog.conf file is configured for the auth system facility with the debug severity level.
