/usr/sbin/in.rlogind [-k5eExXciPp] [-s tos] [-S keytab] [-M realm]
in.rlogind is invoked by inetd(8) when a remote login connection is established. When Kerberos V5 authentication is required (see option -k below), the authentication sequence is as follows:
In order for Kerberos authentication to work, a host/<FQDN> Kerberos principal must exist for each Fully Qualified Domain Name associated with the in.rlogind server. Each of these host/<FQDN> principals must have a keytab entry in the /etc/krb5/krb5.keytab file on the in.rlogind server. An example principal might be:
See kadmin(8) for instructions on adding a principal to a krb5.keytab file. See for a discussion of Kerberos authentication.
If Kerberos V5 authentication is not enabled, then the authentication procedure follows the standard rlogin protocol:
Once the source port and address have been checked, in.rlogind allocates a pseudo-terminal and manipulates file descriptors so that the subsidiary half of the pseudo-terminal becomes the stdin, stdout, and stderr for a login process. The login process is an instance of the login(1) program, invoked with the -r.
The login process then proceeds with the pam(3PAM) authentication process. See SECURITY below. If automatic authentication fails, it reprompts the user to login.
The parent of the login process manipulates the manager side of the pseudo-terminal, operating as an intermediary between the login process and the client instance of the rlogin program. In normal operation, a packet protocol is invoked to provide Ctrl-S and Ctrl-Q type facilities and propagate interrupt signals to the remote programs. The login process propagates the client terminal's baud rate and terminal type, as found in the environment variable, TERM.
Typically, Kerberized rlogin service runs on port 543 (klogin) and Kerberized, encrypted rlogin service runs on port 2105 (eklogin). The corresponding FMRI entries are:
svc:/network/login:klogin (rlogin with kerberos) svc:/network/login:eklogin (rlogin with kerberos and encryption)
With this configuration, the server checks the client's source address. If an entry for the client exists in both /etc/hosts and /etc/hosts.equiv, a user logging in from the client is not prompted for a password. If the address is associated with a host for which no corresponding entry exists in /etc/hosts, the user is prompted for a password, regardless of whether or not an entry for the client is present in /etc/hosts.equiv. See hosts(5) and hosts.equiv(5).
When running a Kerberized rlogin service (with or without the encryption option), the pam service name that should be used is "krlogin".
If there are no entries for the rlogin service, then the entries for the "other" service will be used. If multiple authentication modules are listed, then the user may be prompted for multiple passwords. Removing the pam_rhosts_auth.so.1 entry will disable the /etc/hosts.equiv and ~/.rhosts authentication protocol and the user would always be forced to type the password. The sufficient flag indicates that authentication through the pam_rhosts_auth.so.1 module is sufficient to authenticate the user. Only if this authentication fails is the next authentication module used.
Hostname for your address unknown.
A facility to allow all data exchanges to be encrypted should be present.
The pam_unix(7) module is no longer supported. Similar functionality is provided by pam_authtok_check(7), pam_authtok_get(7), pam_authtok_store(7), pam_dhkeys(7), pam_passwd_auth(7), pam_unix_account(7), pam_unix_auth(7), and pam_unix_session(7).
The in.rlogind service is managed by the service management facility, smf(7), under the service identifier:
svc:/network/login:rlogin (rlogin) svc:/network/login:klogin (rlogin with kerberos) svc:/network/login:eklogin (rlogin with kerberos and encryption)
Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(8). Responsibility for initiating and restarting this service is delegated to inetd(8). Use inetadm(8) to make configuration changes and to view configuration information for this service. The service's status can be queried using the svcs(1) command.
