rpasswdd - remote password update daemon


rpasswdd [-4|-6] [-d] [-c certificate] [-k privatekey] [-p port] [--slp] [--slp-timeout timeout] [--slp-descr description]


rpasswdd is a daemon that lets users change their passwords in the presence of a directory service like NIS, NIS+ or LDAP over a secure SSL connection. rpasswdd behaves like the normal passwd(1) program and uses PAM for authentification and changing the password, so it can be configured very flexibel for the local requirements.

A normal user may only change the password for their own account, if the user knows the password of the administrator account (in the moment this is the root password on the server), he may change the password for any account if he calls rpasswd with the -a option.


-d, --debug
Causes the server to run in debugging mode. Normally, rpasswdd reports only errors using the syslog(3) facility. In debug mode, the server does not background itself and prints extra status messages to stderr for each request that it revceives.
-c, --certificate certificate
Specify another file which contains the certificate than /etc/rpasswdd.pem.
-k, --privatekey privatekey
Specify another file which contains the private key than /etc/rpasswdd.pem.
-p, --port port number
Specify another port where the daemon will listen on for requests.
rpasswdd will only accept IPv4 connections.
rpasswd will accept IPv4 and IPv6 connections.
Register rpasswd service at local SLP server.


/etc/pam.d/rpasswd - the PAM configuration file
/etc/rpasswdd.pem - contains the certificate and private key


passwd(1), passwd(5), rpasswd(1)
