NAME
dacsinfocard - manage InfoCard accounts SYNOPSIS
dacsinfocard [dacsoptions[1]] DESCRIPTION
This program is part of the DACS suite. The dacsinfocard command manages accounts that are used by the local_infocard_authenticate[2] authentication module. This utility serves a similar purpose for these authentication modules that the dacspasswd(1)[3] command does for its local_passwd_authenticate[4] module. Apart from their use by local_infocard_authenticate, these accounts are completely separate from any other accounts. Security The digest algorithm used depends on the INFOCARD_DIGEST[5] directive in effect. Plaintext PPIDs are not stored. This makes it more difficult for an attacker that gains access to the InfoCard account file to discover PPIDs. Only a DACS administrator should be able to successfully run this program from the command line. Because DACS keys and configuration files, including the file used to store accounts, must be restricted to an administrator, this will normally be the case, but a careful administrator will set file permissions to deny access to all other users. An ordinary user is able to change his own InfoCard registration using the dacs_infocard(8)[6] web service. This program is also available as a DACS web service, dacs_infocard(8)[6]. OPTIONS
The dacsinfocard command recognizes these command line flags: EXAMPLES
To list all of the InfoCard accounts configured for the jurisdiction named INFOCARDS: % dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -list DSS::INFOCARDS:bob managed,istatic,enabled,passwd DSS::INFOCARDS:alice managed,istatic,disabled,passwd To re-enable the alice account: % dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -ena alice To test if alice's account is enabled: % dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -test ena alice % echo $status 0 To test if there are accounts for usernames bob and carol: % dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -test exists carol % echo $status 0 % dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -test exists bob % echo $status 1 To get the private data for username bob: % set x=`dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -pdg bob` % echo "$x" On vacation DIAGNOSTICS
The program exits 0 if everything was fine, and non-zero otherwise. A "false" outcome from the -test operation is reflected by an exit status of 1. An error condition is indicated by an exit status of 2. BUGS
As this is a relatively new and complicated feature, please test carefully. SEE ALSO
