- The credential used to validate requests when accessing files with UNIX-style security. It consists of the UID and a list of GIDs corresponding to the groups to which the user belongs. In the case of NFS requests, the UNIX cred is passed with each request. For CIFS clients, the UNIX cred is constructed at login from the mapped UNIX identity.
