cvcd - virtual console daemon SYNOPSIS
/platform/platform_name/cvcd [-a auth] [-e encr] [-u esp_auth] DESCRIPTION
The virtual console daemon, cvcd, is a server process that supports the network console provided on some platforms. The cvcd daemon accepts network console connections from a remote host (only one host at any given time). Console input is read from this connection and forwarded to cvc(7D) by way of cvcredir(7D). Similarly, console output is read from cvcredir(7D) and forwarded across the network console connection. If cvcd dies, console traffic is automatically rerouted through an internal hardware interface. The cvcd daemon normally starts at system boot time. Each domain supports only one cvcd process at a time. Caution - On Sun Enterprise 10000 domains, cvcd uses a configuration file (/etc/ssphostname) to determine the name of the host from which network console connections are allowed. If the remote console host is renamed, you must edit the configuration file to reflect that change. The cvcd daemon supports per-socket IP Security Architecture (IPsec) through the options described below. See ipsec(7P). OPTIONS
The cvcd daemon supports the options listed below. -a auth Controls the IPsec Authentication Header (AH) algorithm. auth can be one of none, md5, or sha1. -e encr Controls the IPsec Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) encryption algorithm. encr can be one of none, des, or 3des. -u esp_auth Controls the IPsec Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) authentication algorithm. esp_auth can be one of none, md5, or sha1. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: platform_name The official Sun platform name used in packaging and code. For example, for Sun Fire 15K servers, the platform_name would be SUNW,Sun-Fire-15000. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Setting an IPSec Option The command below sets the value of the IPsec Authentication Header algorithm to md5. As a result of this command, cvcd will use the HMAC- MD5 authentication algorithm. # svccfg -s svc:/system/cvc setprop cvc/ah_auth = "md5" # svccfg -s svc:/system/cvc setprop cvc/esp_encr = "none" # svccfg -s svc:/system/cvc setprop cvc/esp_auth = "none" # svcadm refresh svc:/system/cvc ATTRIBUTES

The cvcd service is managed by the service management facility, smf(5), under the fault management resource identifier (FMRI): svc:/system/cvc Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(1M) or svc- cfg(1M). The service's status can be queried using the svcs(1) command. SunOS 5.11 9 Mar 2006 cvcd(1M)

sckmd - Sun cryptographic key management daemon SYNOPSIS
/usr/platform/sun4u/lib/sckmd DESCRIPTION
sckmd is a server process that resides on a high-end system domain to maintain the Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) Security Associations (SAs) needed to secure communications between a Service Processor or System Controller (SC) and platform management software running within a domain. The cvcd(1M) and dcs(1M) daemons use these Security Associations. See ipsec(7P) for a description of Security Associations. The sckmd daemon receives SAs from the Service Processor or SC and installs these SAs in a domain's Security Association Database (SADB) using pf_key(7P). sckmd starts up at system boot time as an SMF service. The FMRI for the sckmd service is: svc:/platform/sun4u/sckmd:default A domain supports only one running sckmd process at a time. ATTRIBUTES

The sckmd service is used only on Sun Fire high-end systems and the SPARC Enterprise Server family. It provides a mechanism for exchanging IPsec keys between a domain and its System Controller (SC) or Service Processor. These platforms use IPsec to secure the communications between the SC or Service Processor and certain platform-specific daemons in the domain. Such daemons currently include cvcd(1M) and dcs(1M). The documentation for each platform that supports sckmd describes how to configure its use of IPsec for such communications. Also, the doc- umentation for each specific application describes how to configure its security policies and IPsec options in a manner appropriate for the target platform. Refer to the platform- and application-specific documentation for detailed information. SunOS 5.11 25 Apr 2006 sckmd(1M)
