       lcmaps_localaccount.mod - LCMAPS plugin to switch user identity


       lcmaps_localaccount.mod [-gridmapfile gridmapfile]


       This plugin is an Acquisition Plugin and will provide the LCMAPS system with Local Account
       credential information.  To do this it needs to look up the Distinguished Name (DN) from a
       user's  certificate in the gridmapfile.  If this DN is found in the gridmapfile the plugin
       knows the mapped local (system) account username.  By knowing the username  of  the  local
       account  the plugin can gather additional information about this account.  The plugin will
       resolve the UID, GID and all the secondary GIDs.   When  this  has  been  done  and  there
       weren't  any problems detected, the plugin will add this information to a datastructure in
       the Plugin Manager.  The plugin will finish  its  run  with  a  LCMAPS_MOD_SUCCESS.   This
       result  will  be  reported  to  the  Plugin  Manager which started this plugin and it will
       forward this result to the Evaluation Manager, which will take appropriate actions for the
       next  plugin to run.  Normally this plugin would be followed by an Enforcement plugin that
       can  apply  these  gathered  credentials  in  a  way  that  is  appropriate  to  a  system
       administration's needs.


       -gridmapfile gridmapfile
              When  this  option is set it will override the default path of the gridmapfile.  It
              is advised to use an absolute path to the gridmapfile to avoid usage of  the  wrong





       Since  version  1.6.0  the localaccount plugin supports grid-mapfile entries with multiple
       usernames, separated by a comma without whitespace. This can be used in  combination  with
       specifying a  requested username  (such as by gsissh), to pick any of these accounts. When
       no  requested username is specified, the first is used. This requires LCMAPS version 1.6.0
       or newer.
