dacsinfocard — manage InfoCard accounts
This program is part of the DACS suite.
The dacsinfocard command manages accounts that are used by the local_infocard_authenticate authentication module. This utility serves a similar purpose for these authentication modules that the dacspasswd(1) command does for its local_passwd_authenticate module.
Apart from their use by local_infocard_authenticate, these accounts are completely separate from any other accounts.
The digest algorithm used depends on the INFOCARD_DIGEST 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) web service.
This program is also available as a DACS web service, dacs_infocard(8).
To list all of the InfoCard accounts configured for the jurisdiction
% dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -list DSS::INFOCARDS:bob managed,istatic,enabled,passwd DSS::INFOCARDS:alice managed,istatic,disabled,passwd
To re-enable the
% 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
% dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -test exists carol % echo $status 0 % dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -test exists bob % echo $status 1
To get the private data for username
% set x=`dacsinfocard -uj INFOCARDS -pdg bob` % echo "$x" On vacation
