myproxy-server - store credentials in an online repository
myproxy-server [ options ]
The myproxy-server is a server that runs on a trusted, secure host and
manages a database of security credentials for use from remote sites.
The myproxy-init(1) program stores credentials with associated policies
that specify credential lifetimes and who is authorized to retrieve
credentials. The myproxy-server.config(5) file sets server-wide poli-
cies that are used in conjunction with the policies set by myproxy-
init(1) to control who is authorized to store and retrieve credentials.
Displays command usage text and exits.
Displays command usage text and exits.
Enables verbose debugging output to the terminal.
Displays version information and exits.
Run the server in debug mode. In this mode, the server will run
in the foreground, will accept one connection, write log mes-
sages to the terminal while processing the incoming request, and
exit after completing one request.
-l hostname/ipaddr, --listen hostname/ipaddr
Specifies the hostname or IP address that the myproxy-server
should listen (bind) to. Default: all interfaces on the local-
-p port, --port port
Specifies the TCP port number that the myproxy-server should
listen on. Default: 7512
-c file, --config file
Specifies the location of the myproxy-server configuration file.
Default: /etc/myproxy-server.config or $GLOBUS_LOCA-
-s dir, --storage dir
Specifies the location of the credential storage directory. The
directory must be accessible only by the user running the
myproxy-server process for security reasons. Default:
/var/lib/myproxy or /var/myproxy or $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var/myproxy
Default location of the server configuration file (see myproxy-
server.config(5)). If not found, $GLOBUS_LOCATION/etc/myproxy-
server.config will be used. An alternate location can be speci-
fied by using the -c option.
Default location of the credential storage directory. If not
found, /var/myproxy or $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var/myproxy will be
used. If none of these directories exist, the myproxy-server
will first attempt to create /var/lib/myproxy and if that fails
will attempt to create $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var/myproxy and use
that. The directory must be accessible only by the user running
the myproxy-server process for security reasons. An alternate
location can be specified by using the -s option.
Specifies the root of the MyProxy installation, used to find the
default location of the myproxy-server.config file and the cre-
dential storage directory.
Setting this environment variable to "1" will disable the
reporting of usage metrics.
The MyProxy server is typically linked dynamically with Globus
security libraries, which must be present in the dynamic
linker's search path. This typically requires $GLOBUS_LOCA-
TION/lib to be included in the list in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH envi-
ronment variable, which is set by the $GLOBUS_LOCA-
TION/libexec/globus-script-initializer script, which should be
called from any myproxy-server startup script. Alternatively,
to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH appropriately for the Globus libraries in
an interactive shell, source $GLOBUS_LOCATION/etc/globus-user-
env.sh (for sh shells) or $GLOBUS_LOCATION/etc/globus-
user.env.csh (for csh shells).
Specifies the port where the myproxy-server(8) is running. This
environment variable can be used in place of the -p option.
Specifies an alternative location for the server's certificate.
By default, the server uses /etc/grid-security/hostcert.pem when
running as root or ~/.globus/usercert.pem when running as non-
Specifies an alternative location for the server's private key.
By default, the server uses /etc/grid-security/hostkey.pem when
running as root or ~/.globus/userkey.pem when running as non-
Specifies an alternative location for the server's certificate
and private key (in the same file). Use when running the server
with a proxy credential. Note that the proxy will need to be
periodically renewed before expiration to allow the myproxy-
server to keep functioning. When the myproxy-server runs with a
non-host credential, clients must have the MYPROXY_SERVER_DN
environment variable set to the distinguished name of the cer-
tificate being used by the server.
Specifies a non-standard location for the CA certificates direc-
Specifies the size for RSA keys generated by MyProxy. By
default, MyProxy generates 2048 bit RSA keys. Set this environ-
ment variable to "1024" for 1024 bit RSA keys.
