NAME

       request-key - handle key instantiation callback requests from the kernel

SYNOPSIS

       /sbin/request-key  <op>  <key>  <uid>  <gid> <threadring> <processring>      <sessionring>
       [<info>]

DESCRIPTION

       This program is invoked by the kernel when the kernel is asked for a key that  it  doesn't
       have  immediately  available. The kernel creates a partially set up key and then calls out
       to this program to instantiate it. It is not intended to be called directly.

       However, for debugging purposes, it can be given some options on the command line:

       -d     Turn on debugging mode.  In this mode, no attempts are made to access any keys and,
              if  a handler program is selected, it won't be executed; instead, this program will
              print a message and exit 0.

       -D <description>
              In debugging mode, use the proposed key description specified with this rather than
              the sample ("user;0;0;1f0000;debug:1234") built into the program.

       -l     Use configuration from the current directory.  The program will use request-key.d/*
              and request-key.conf from the current directory rather than from /etc.

       -n     Don't log to the system log.  Ordinarily, error  messages  and  debugging  messages
              will be copied to the system log - this will prevent that.

       -v     Turn  on  debugging  output.   This  may  be  specified  multiple  times to produce
              increasing levels of verbosity.

       --version
              Print the program version and exit.

ERRORS

       All errors will be logged to the syslog.

FILES

       /etc/request-key.d/*.conf Individual configuration files.

       /etc/request-key.conf Fallback configuration file.
