NAME

       myproxy-retrieve - retrieve an end-entity credential

SYNOPSIS

       myproxy-retrieve [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

       The  myproxy-retrieve  command  retrieves a credential directly from the myproxy-server(8)
       that was previously stored using myproxy-init(1)  or  myproxy-store(1).   Unlike  myproxy-
       logon(1),  this command transfers the private key in the repository over the network (over
       a private channel).  To obtain a proxy credential,  we  recommend  using  myproxy-logon(1)
       instead.

       In  the  default  mode,  the  command  prompts  for  the  pass  phrase associated with the
       credential to be retrieved and stores the retrieved credential in the standard location  (
       ~/.globus/usercert.pem  and ~/.globus/userkey.pem).  You could then run grid-proxy-init to
       create a proxy credential from the retrieved credentials.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              Displays command usage text and exits.

       -u, --usage
              Displays command usage text and exits.

       -v, --verbose
              Enables verbose debugging output to the terminal.

       -V, --version
              Displays version information and exits.

       -s hostname[:port], --pshost hostname[:port]
              Specifies the hostname(s)  of  the  myproxy-server(s).   Multiple  hostnames,  each
              hostname optionally followed by a ':' and port number, may be specified in a comma-
              separated list.  This option is required if the MYPROXY_SERVER environment variable
              is not defined.  If specified, this option overrides the MYPROXY_SERVER environment
              variable. If a port number is specified with a hostname, it will  override  the  -p
              option as well as the MYPROXY_SERVER_PORT environment variable for that host.

       -p port, --psport port
              Specifies the TCP port number of the myproxy-server(8).  Default: 7512

       -l username, --username username
              Specifies the MyProxy account under which the credential to retrieve is stored.  By
              default, the command uses the value of the LOGNAME environment variable.  Use  this
              option  to specify a different account username on the MyProxy server.  The MyProxy
              username need not correspond to a real Unix username.

       -d, --dn_as_username
              Use the certificate subject (DN) as the default username, instead  of  the  LOGNAME
              environment variable.  When used with the -a option, the certificate subject of the
              authorization credential is  used.   Otherwise,  the  certificate  subject  of  the
              default credential is used.

       -t hours, --proxy_lifetime hours
              Specifies  the  lifetime  of credentials retrieved from the myproxy-server(8) using
              the stored credential.  The resulting lifetime is  the  shorter  of  the  requested
              lifetime  and  the lifetime specified when the credential was stored using myproxy-
              init(1).  Default: 12 hours

       -c filename, --certfile filename
              Specifies  the  filename  of  where the  certificate will be stored.

       -y filename, --keyfile filename
              Specifies the filename of where the private  key will be stored.

       -a file, --authorization file
              Use this option to specify an existing, valid credential that you  want  to  renew.
              Renewing  a  credential  generally  requires two certificate-based authentications.
              The client authenticates with its identity, using the credential  in  the  standard
              location  or  specified  by  X509_USER_PROXY or X509_USER_CERT and X509_USER_KEY in
              addition to authenticating with the existing credential, in the location  specified
              by this option, that it wants to renew.

       -k name, --credname name
              Specifies the name of the credential that is to be retrieved or renewed.

       -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.

       -T, --trustroots
              Retrieve CA certificates directory from server  (if  available)  to  store  in  the
              location  specified  by the X509_CERT_DIR environment variable if set or /etc/grid-
              security/certificates if running as root or ~/.globus/certificates  if  running  as
              non-root.

       -n, --no_passphrase
              Don't  prompt  for  a credential passphrase.  Use other methods for authentication,
              such as Kerberos ticket or X.509 certificate.

EXIT STATUS

       0 on success, >0 on error

ENVIRONMENT

       GLOBUS_GSSAPI_NAME_COMPATIBILITY
              This client will, by default, perform a reverse-DNS lookup to  determine  the  FQHN
              (Fully  Qualified  Host  Name)  to  use  in verifying the identity of the server by
              checking the FQHN against the CN in server's certificate.  Setting this variable to
              STRICT_RFC2818  will cause the reverse-DNS lookup to NOT be performed and the user-
              specified name to be used instead.   This  variable  setting  will  be  ignored  if
              MYPROXY_SERVER_DN (described later) is set.

       MYPROXY_SERVER
              Specifies   the  hostname(s)  where  the  myproxy-server(8)  is  running.  Multiple
              hostnames can be specified in a comma separated list with each hostname  optionally
              followed  by a ':' and port number.  This environment variable can be used in place
              of the -s option.

       MYPROXY_SERVER_PORT
              Specifies the port  where  the  myproxy-server(8)  is  running.   This  environment
              variable can be used in place of the -p option.

       MYPROXY_SERVER_DN
              Specifies the distinguished name (DN) of the myproxy-server(8).  All MyProxy client
              programs authenticate the server's identity.  By default, MyProxy servers run  with
              host  credentials,  so  the  MyProxy  client  programs  expect the server to have a
              distinguished name with "/CN=host/<fqhn>" or "/CN=myproxy/<fqhn>"  or  "/CN=<fqhn>"
              (where  <fqhn>  is  the  fully-qualified hostname of the server).  If the server is
              running with some other DN, you can set  this  environment  variable  to  tell  the
              MyProxy     clients     to     accept     the     alternative    DN.    Also    see
              GLOBUS_GSSAPI_NAME_COMPATIBILITY above.

       MYPROXY_TCP_PORT_RANGE
              Specifies a range of valid port numbers in the form "min,max" for the  client  side
              of  the  network connection to the server.  By default, the client will bind to any
              available port.  Use this environment variable to restrict  the  ports  used  to  a
              range  allowed  by your firewall.  If unset, MyProxy will follow the setting of the
              GLOBUS_TCP_PORT_RANGE environment variable.

       X509_USER_CERT
              Specifies a non-standard location for the certificate to be used for authentication
              to  the  myproxy-server(8).   Also  specifies  the location for where the retrieved
              certificate will be stored unless the -c option is given.

       X509_USER_KEY
              Specifies a non-standard location for the private key to be used for authentication
              to  the  myproxy-server(8).   Also  specifies  the location for where the retrieved
              private key will be stored unless the -y option is given.

       X509_USER_PROXY
              Specifies a  non-standard  location  for  the  proxy  credential  to  be  used  for
              authentication to the myproxy-server(8).

       X509_CERT_DIR
              Specifies a non-standard location for the CA certificates directory.
