munge - MUNGE credential encoder
The 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.

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.
Display a list of supported cipher types.
-m, --mac string
Specify the MAC type, either by name or number.
Display a list of supported MAC types.
-z, --zip string
Specify the compression type, either by name or number.
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.
-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.
-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
-S, --socket string
Specify the local domain socket for connecting with munged.
The 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.
