kadmind — server
for administrative access to Kerberos database
kadmind listens for requests for changes
to the Kerberos database and performs these, subject to permissions. When
starting, if stdin is a socket it assumes that it has been started by
inetd(8), otherwise it behaves as a daemon, forking
processes for each new connection. The
kadmind to accept exactly one
connection, which is useful for debugging.
This daemon should only be run on the master server, and not on any slaves.
Principals are always allowed to change their own password and list their own principal. Apart from that, doing any operation requires permission explicitly added in the ACL file /var/heimdal/kadmind.acl. The format of this file is:
Where rights is any (comma separated) combination of:
- change-password or cpw
- all (everything except get-keys)
And the optional principal-pattern restricts the rights to operations on principals that match the glob-style pattern.
- location of config file
- location of master key file
- what keytab to use
- realm to use
- enable debugging
- ports to listen to. By default, if run as a daemon, it listens to port 749, but you can add any number of ports with this option. The port string is a whitespace separated list of port specifications, with the special string “+” representing the default port.
This will cause
kadmind to listen to port
4711 in addition to any compiled in defaults:
="+ 4711" &
This acl file will grant Joe all rights, and allow Mallory to view and add host principals, as well as extract host principal keys (e.g., into keytabs).
