munge: MUNGE credential encoder
DESCRIPTIONThe munge program creates an MUNGE credential containing the UID and GID of the calling process. Additional payload data can be encapsulated in as well. The returned credential can be passed to another process which can validate its contents (e.g., via the unmunge program). This allows an unrelated and potentially remote process to ascertain the identity of the calling process.
By default, payload input is read from stdin and the credential is written to stdout.
- -h, --help
- Display a summary of the command-line options.
- -L, --license
- Display license information.
- -V, --version
- Display version information.
- -n, --no-input
- Discard all input for the payload.
- -s, --string string
- Input payload from the specified string.
- -i, --input file
- Input payload from the specified file.
- -o, --output file
- Output the credential to the specified file.
- -c, --cipher string
- Specify the cipher type, either by name or number.
- -C, --list-ciphers
- Display a list of supported cipher types.
- -m, --mac string
- Specify the MAC type, either by name or number.
- -M, --list-macs
- Display a list of supported MAC types.
- -z, --zip string
- Specify the compression type, either by name or number.
- -Z, --list-zips
- Display a list of supported compression types.
- -u, --restrict-uid uid
- Specify the user name or UID allowed to decode the credential. This will be matched against the effective user ID of the process requesting the credential decode.
- -U, --uid uid
- Specify the user name or UID under which to request the credential. This requires root privileges or the CAP_SETUID capability.
- -g, --restrict-gid gid
- Specify the group name or GID allowed to decode the credential. This will be matched against the effective group ID of the process requesting the credential decode, as well as each supplementary group of which the effective user ID of that process is a member.
- -G, --gid gid
- Specify the group name or GID under which to request the credential. This requires root privileges or the CAP_SETGID capability.
- -t, --ttl integer
- Specify the time-to-live (in seconds). This controls how long the credential is valid once it has been encoded. A value of 0 selects the default TTL. A value of -1 selects the maximum allowed TTL.
- -S, --socket path
Specify the local domain socket for connecting with munged.
EXIT STATUSThe munge program returns a zero exit code when the credential is successfully created and returned. On error, it prints an error message to stderr and returns a non-zero exit code.
