myproxy-admin-adduser - add a user or service credential
myproxy-admin-adduser [ options ]
myproxy-admin-addservice [ options ]
The myproxy-admin-adduser and myproxy-admin-addservice commands create
a new credential for a user or service and load it into the MyProxy
repository. They are perl(1) scripts that run grid-cert-request (a
standard Globus Toolkit program) and grid-ca-sign (from the Globus
Simple CA package) to create the credential and then run myproxy-admin-
load-credential(8) to load the credential into the MyProxy repository.
The command prompts for the common name to be included in the new
certificate (if the -c argument is not specified), the Globus Simple CA
key password for signing the certificate, the MyProxy username (if the
-l or -d arguments are not specified), and the MyProxy passphrase for
the credential. Most of the command-line options for this command are
passed directly to the myproxy-admin-load-credential(8) command.
The grid-ca-sign program is not provided in the MyProxy distribution.
It must be installed separately, from the Globus Simple CA package.
-h Displays command usage text and exits.
-u Displays command usage text and exits.
-v Enables verbose debugging output to the terminal.
-c cn Specifies the Common Name for the new credential (for example:
-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
Specifies the MyProxy account under which the credential should
Specifies the maximum lifetime of credentials retrieved from the
myproxy-server(8) using the stored credential. Default: 12
Specifies the password for the CA's private key using the format
documented in the PASS PHRASE ARGUMENTS section of openssl(1).
-n Disables passphrase authentication for the stored credential.
If specified, the command will not prompt for a passphrase, the
credential will not be encrypted by a passphrase in the
repository, and the credential will not be retrievable using
passphrase authentication with myproxy-logon(1). This option is
used for storing renewable credentials and is implied by -R.
-d Use the certificate subject (DN) as the username.
-a Allow credentials to be retrieved with just pass phrase
authentication. By default, only entities with credentials that
match the myproxy-server.config(5) default retriever policy may
retrieve credentials. This option allows entities without
existing credentials to retrieve a credential using pass phrase
authentication by including "anonymous" in the set of allowed
retrievers. The myproxy-server.config(5) server-wide policy
must also allow "anonymous" clients for this option to have an
-A Allow credentials to be renewed by any client. Any client with
a valid credential with a subject name that matches the stored
credential may retrieve a new credential from the MyProxy
repository if this option is given. Since this effectively
defeats the purpose of proxy credential lifetimes, it is not
recommended. It is included only for sake of completeness.
Allow the specified entity to retrieve credentials. See -x and
-X options for controlling name matching behavior.
Allow the specified entity to renew credentials. See -x and -X
options for controlling name matching behavior. This option
implies -n since passphrase authentication is not used for
-Z name, --retrievable_by_cert name
Allow the specified entity to retrieve credentials without a
passphrase. See -x and -X options for controlling name matching
behavior. This option implies -n.
-x Specifies that names used with following options -r, -R, and -Z
will be matched against the full certificate subject
distinguished name (DN) according to REGULAR EXPRESSIONS in
-X Specifies that names used with following options -r, -R, and -Z
will be matched against the certificate subject common name (CN)
according to REGULAR EXPRESSIONS in myproxy-server.config(5).
For example, if an argument of -r "Jim Basney" is specified,
then the resulting policy will be "*/CN=Jim Basney". This is
the default behavior.
Specifies the credential name.
Specifies credential description.
