NAME
       kgrantpty - konsole uses this to securely open a slave pty

SYNOPSIS
       kgrantpty [OPTION] [FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       kgrantpty is only intended to be used internally by konsole to open a slave pty securely.  It performs a setuid
       chmod and chown on the slave pty device.  Eavesdropping is prevented with the usage of  a  file  handle  as  an
       argument. KPty automatically calls this tool, and it is not intended to be called from the command line.

OPTIONS
       --grant
              grant secure setuid root chmod and chown to the file descriptor

       --revoke
              revoke the secure setuid root chmod and chown from the file descriptor

SECURITY
       kgrantpty must be used as setuid root.

SEE ALSO
       ttyname(3), forkpty(3), tty(4), pty(7)
