RPCSEC_GSS Security Flavor

A security flavor, called RPCSEC_GSS, is supported in the Solaris 7 release. This flavor uses the standard GSS-API interfaces to provide authentication, integrity, and privacy, as well as enabling support of multiple security mechanisms. See Kerberos Support for the NFS Service for more information about support of Kerberos V5 authentication. See Oracle Solaris Security for Developers Guide for more information about GSS-API.
