4.24. sssd

The System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) provides a set of daemons to manage access to remote directories and authentication mechanisms. It provides an NSS and PAM interface toward the system and a pluggable back-end system to connect to multiple different account sources. It is also the basis to provide client auditing and policy services for projects such as FreeIPA.
  • When SSSD communicates with an OpenLDAP server, which supports server-side password policies but does not list them in the supportedControl attribute of the server's rootDSE entry, SSSD terminates unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. (BZ#713961)
