       gssproxy-mech - GssProxy GSSAPI mechanism plugin


       proxymech_v1 2.16.840.1.113730. /usr/lib64/gssproxy/  [options]


       The gssproxy proxymech module is a interposer plugin that is loaded by GSSAPI. It is
       enabled by /etc/gss/mech configuration file.

       The interposer plugin allows to intercept the entire GSSAPI communication and detour to
       the gssproxy daemon. When the interposer plugin is installed two other conditions need to
       be met in order to activate it:

       a) interposer configuration file
           The plugin needs to be manually enabled in the /etc/gss/mech file.

       b) gssproxy environment variable
           The interposer plugin will not forward to the gssproxy daemon unless the environment
           variable named GSS_USE_PROXY=yes is set.

       Furthermore, the interposer plugin can be configured to behave in different ways when
       called from the GSSAPI. This behavior is controlled via the GSSPROXY_BEHAVIOR environment
       variable. It accepts four different values:

           All commands received with this setting will cause to immediately reenter the GSSAPI
           w/o any interaction with the gssproxy daemon. When the request cannot be processed it
           will just fail.

           All commands received with this setting will cause to immediately reenter the GSSAPI.
           When the local GSSAPI cannot process the request, it will resend the request to the
           gssproxy daemon.

           All commands received with this setting will be forwarded to the gssproxy daemon
           first. If the request cannot be handled there, the request will reenter the local

           This setting is currently not fully implemented and therefor not supported.

       The default setting for GSSPROXY_BEHAVIOR is REMOTE_FIRST.

       Finally the interposer may need to use a special per-service socket in order to
       communicate with gssproxy. The path to this socket is set via the GSSPROXY_SOCKET
       environment variable.
