KPASSWDD(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			      KPASSWDD(8)

     kpasswdd -- Kerberos 5 password changing server

     kpasswdd [--addresses=address] [--check-library=library] [--check-function=function] [-k
	      kspec | --keytab=kspec] [-r realm | --realm=realm] [-p string | --port=string]
	      [--version] [--help]

     kpasswdd serves request for password changes. It listens on UDP port 464 (service kpasswd)
     and processes requests when they arrive. It changes the database directly and should thus
     only run on the master KDC.

     Supported options:

	     For each till the argument is given, add the address to what kpasswdd should listen

	     If your system has support for dynamic loading of shared libraries, you can use an
	     external function to check password quality. This option specifies which library to

	     This is the function to call in the loaded library. The function should look like

	     const char * passwd_check(krb5_context context, krb5_principal principal, krb5_data

	     context is an initialized context; principal is the one who tries to change pass-
	     words, and password is the new password. Note that the password (in password->data)
	     is not zero terminated.

     -k kspec, --keytab=kspec
	     Keytab to get authentication key from.

     -r realm, --realm=realm
	     Default realm.

     -p string, --port=string
	     Port to listen on (default service kpasswd - 464).

     If an error occurs, the error message is returned to the user and/or logged to syslog.

     The default password quality checks are too basic.
