myproxy-admin-change-pass: change credential passphrase


myproxy-admin-change-pass - change credential passphrase


myproxy-admin-change-pass [ options ]


The myproxy-admin-change-pass command changes the passphrase used to encrypt a credential in the MyProxy repository. The command first prompts for the current passphrase for the credential, then prompts twice for the new passphrase. If an empty passphrase is given, the credential will not be encrypted. It accesses the repository directly and must be run on the machine where the myproxy-server(8) is installed from the account that owns the repository.

-s dir
Specifies the location of the credential storage directory. The directory must be accessible only by the user running the myproxy-server process for security reasons. Default: /var/lib/myproxy or /var/myproxy or $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var/myproxy
-l username
Specifies the MyProxy account under which the credential should be stored.
-k name
Specifies the credential name.
-S, --stdin_pass
By default, the command prompts for a passphrase and reads the passphrase from the active tty. When running the command non-interactively, there may be no associated tty. Specifying this option tells the command to read passphrases from standard input without prompts or confirmation.
