gssd - generates and validates GSS-API tokens for kernel RPC
gssd is the user mode daemon that operates between the kernel RPC and the Generic Security Service Application Program Interface (GSS-API) to generate and validate GSS-API security tokens. In addition, gssd maps the GSS-API principal names to the local user and group ids. By default, all groups that the requested user belongs to will be included in the grouplist credential.
The SMF service svc:/network/rcp/gss:default is enabled by default.

The gssd service is managed by the service management facility, smf(7), under the service identifier: svc:/network/rpc/gss:default
