       gradm - Administration program for the grsecurity RBAC system


       gradm  [  -E  ]  [  -R  ]  [  -C  ]  [  -F  ]  [  -L  <logfile>  ] [ -O
       <filename|stream> ] [ -M <filename|uid> ] [ -D ] [ -P [rolename] ] [ -a
       <rolename> ] [ -n <rolename> ] [ -p <rolename> ] [ -u ] [ -V ] [ -h ] [
       -v ]


       gradm is the userspace RBAC  parsing  and  authentication  program  for

       grsecurity  aims to be a complete security system for Linux 2.4.  gradm
       performs several tasks for the RBAC system including authenticated  via
       a  password to the kernel and parsing rules to be passed to the kernel.


       All options to gradm are mutually exclusive, except for -L and -O.

       -E     Enable the RBAC system

       -R     Reload the RBAC system (only valid while in admin mode)

       -C     Perform a check of the RBAC policy, running  the  same  analysis
              against it that is performed when enabling.

       -F     Toggle full learning mode.  If used only with -L, it enables the
              RBAC system in full learning mode.  If used with -L and  -O,  it
              parses  the full learning logs and generates a complete ruleset.

       -M <filename|uid>
              Remove an execution ban on a given uid or filename that has been
              put  in  place by the RES_CRASH resource restriction of the RBAC

       -L <logfile>
              Parses the learning logs.  Accepts an argument  which  specifies
              the  logfile to scan for the learning logs.  If "-" is specified
              as the logfile, stdin will be used as the  learning  log.   This
              option can be used with -E, -O, or -F.

       -O <filename|stream>
              Specifies  output  mode.  Requires a single argument that can be
              "stdout", "stderr", or a regular file.  Only used with -L or -F.

       -D     Disable the RBAC system

       -P [rolename]
              Without  an argument, it sets the password for administering the
              RBAC system.  With a role name  as  an  argument,  it  sets  the
              password for that given special role.

       -a <rolename>
              Authenticate to a special role that requires a password.

       -n <rolename>
              Authenticate to a special role that does not require a password.

       -p <rolename>
              Authenticate through PAM to a special role.

       -u     Removes yourself from your current special role, reverting  back
              to  the  normal  role  selection.  To be used, for instance, for
              logging out of an admin role without exiting your shell.

       -V     Displays verbose policy statistics when enabling the RBAC system
              or  checking  the RBAC policy.  Can only be used with -C, -E, or
              -F -L <filename>

       -h     Display help information

       -v     Print version information and exit
