2.7 Disable Generic Security Services (GSS)


The GSS API is a security abstraction layer that is designed to make it easier for developers to integrate with different authentication schemes. It is most commonly used in applications for sites that use Kerberos for network authentication, though it can also allow applications to interoperate with other authentication schemes.

GSS does not expose anything external to the system as it is configured to use TLI (protocol = ticotsord) by default. This service should be disabled if it is not required.


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