Aurae Daemon

The Aurae Daemon (auraed) is the main daemon that powers Aurae.

The Aurae Daemon runs as a gRPC server which listens over a unix domain socket by default.


Running Auraed

Running as /init is currently under active development.

To run auraed as a standard library server you can run the daemon alongside your current init system.

sudo -E auraed

Additional flags are listed below.

    auraed [OPTIONS]

        --ca-crt <CA_CRT>            [default: /etc/aurae/pki/ca.crt]
    -h, --help                       Print help information
    -s, --socket <SOCKET>            [default: /var/run/aurae/aurae.sock]
        --server-crt <SERVER_CRT>    [default: /etc/aurae/pki/_signed.server.crt]
        --server-key <SERVER_KEY>    [default: /etc/aurae/pki/server.key]
    -v, --verbose
