Rstyxd is normally started by svc(8) in response to incoming network calls. It expects the standard input to be connected to the client; unusually, it is both read and written. It first authenticates the incoming call using keyring-auth(2) via security-auth(2). On successful authorisation, the server sets its user identity to that of the caller, and the client can request that a digest and/or encryption algorithm be applied using ssl(3) to protect the data exchanged with the server. Each alg names a digest or encryption algorithm that the server will allow the client to use, in any form accepted by ssl; the special name none is usually listed, to allow the client to choose not to use ssl.
