kerbd is the usermode daemon which interfaces between kernel RPC and the Kerberos key distribution center (KDC) for the purposes of generating and validating Kerberos authentication tickets. In addition, kerbd maps Kerberos user names into local user and group ids. By default, all groups that the requested user belongs to will be included in the grouplist credential. kerbd is automatically started when the system enters the multi-user state.
