SYNOPSIS

dtcpauth [-i] [--init] dtcpauth [-d] [--delete] user dtcpauth [-l] [--list] user | ALL dtcpauth [-u] [--user] user [password]

DESCRIPTION

The dtcpauth allows the super-user or master POP user to add, delete, or reset credential data for a user, or list which records exist. Only the super-user may initialize the database.

Under normal usage, dtcpauth prompts for a new secret, just like the passwd program. It then updates the authorization DB.

With the --user or -u switch, the super-user or master POP user can create or reset credential data for the specified user. This switch allows the password to be specified on the command line, which avoids the usual prompts and checks. This is mostly useful in a batch environment, such as in a script.

With the --init or -i switch, the super-user can create a new (or zero the existing) authorization DB.

With the --list or -l switch, the super-user or master POP user can verify the presence of a record for the indicated user, or list users who have records. Users can verify the presence of their own records with this switch.

With the --delete or -d switch, the super-user or master POP user can remove a user entry from the authorization DB.

RETURN VALUES

dtcpauth will exit with positive value on errors.

FILES
