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

NAME
     kpasswdd - Kerberos password changing daemon

SYNOPSIS
     kpasswdd

DESCRIPTION
     Kpasswdd is the server for the passwd(1) program.  The server provides a
     remote password changing facility with Kerberos authentication.  A user
     must provide the old Kerberos password, encrypted in a random session
     key, to the server.  Kpasswdd runs only on the Kerberos server, as it di-
     rectly updates the Kerberos database.

SEE ALSO
     kerberos(1),  passwd(1)

HISTORY
     The kpasswdd utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
