`user services' - program call across trust boundaries
userv allows one program to invoke another when only limited trust
exists between them. It is a tool which can be used to avoid having
to give other system services root privilege, and which allows users
to more securely have programs provide services to others.
userv can be useful as `glue' for system administrators; there are
not many full-blown userv-using applications yet.
This is userv, a trust boundary management service for Unix.
Using userv, one program can call another without either of them
having to trust the other completely. This enables applications such
as mail delivery, cron, user-provided CGI scripts and so forth to
operate without needing to be given root privilege.
For installation requirements and instructions please see INSTALL.
