memberd — group membership resolution daemon


memberd [options]


memberd is a daemon process used by the system to resolve group member-
ships. It should always be running and responds to messages from the
kernel or other processes using membership API calls. All resolution is
done using Open Directory calls for both legacy and new group formats,
including support for nested group resolution.
