Name        : nss_ldap
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 264
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.padl.com/
Summary     : NSS library and PAM module for LDAP
Description :
This package includes two LDAP access clients: nss_ldap and pam_ldap.
Nss_ldap is a set of C library extensions that allow X.500 and LDAP
directory servers to be used as a primary source of aliases, ethers,
groups, hosts, networks, protocol, users, RPCs, services, and shadow
passwords (instead of or in addition to using flat files or NIS).

Pam_ldap is a module for Linux-PAM that supports password changes, V2
clients, Netscape's SSL, ypldapd, Netscape Directory Server password
policies, access authorization, and crypted hashes.

Update Information:

This update resolves a bug in a local patch to nss_ldap which caused service
resolution to return incorrect port numbers, correctly fails when an application
calls setnetgrent() for a netgroup which doesn't exist, handles the end of
enumeration correctly, and fixes a possible crash in pam_ldap which could occur
while chasing referrals using SASL authentication.

- pam_ldap: don't crash when we have to follow a referral while looking up
  information about the authenticating user and we're using SASL, which
  affected 259-1 and later (patch from Paul P Komkoff Jr, #469061)

  [ 1 ] Bug #450634 - ipServicePort is byte-swapped in 'services' map
