3.1.10 The slave Directory

This directory contains code which allows for the propagation of the Kerberos principal database from the master KDC to slave KDCs over an encrypted, secure channel. kprop is the program which actually propagates the database dump file. kpropd is the Kerberos V5 slave KDC update server which accepts connections from the kprop program. kslave_update is a script that takes the name of a slave server, and propagates the database to that server if the database has been modified since the last dump or if the database has been dumped since the last propagation.
