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
attribute of the server's rootDSE entry, SSSD terminates unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. (BZ#713961
