start-stop-daemon, --chuid and keychain

Peter's picture

Hi all,

I am hoping someone can help this init script newbie.

For my init script I would like to switch to a different user account for security reasons.  Using the start-stop-daemon I have used the "--chuid" option to switch users.

This works fine however I have found that the user account does not make use keychain for ssh connections.

Is this normal behaviour for the start-stop-daemon?

To work around this issue I have just created a seperate wrapper script "invoke_app" that manually calls keychain and then invokes the application.

Is there another more standard way to do this?

Thanks,

Peter.
