2.3 Disable RPC Encryption Key


The keyserv service is only required for sites that are using the Secure RPC mechanism.
The most common use for Secure RPC on Solaris machines is "secure NFS", which uses the Secure RPC mechanism to provide higher levels of security than the standard NFS protocols. ("Secure NFS" is unrelated to Kerberos authentication as a mechanism for providing higher levels of NFS security. "Kerberized" NFS does not require the keyserv service to be running.)

This service should be disabled if it is not required.


To disable this service, run the following command:
# svcadm disable svc:/network/rpc/keyserv
