Version     : 1.5.1
Release     : 2.1.fc14
URL         : http://fedorahosted.org/sssd/
Summary     : System Security Services Daemon
Description :
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 backend system to connect to multiple different
account sources. It is also the basis to provide client auditing and policy
services for projects like FreeIPA.

Update Information:

- New upstream release 1.5.1
- Addresses CVE-2010-4341 - DoS in sssd PAM responder can prevent logins
- Vast performance improvements when enumerate = true
- All PAM actions will now perform a forced initgroups lookup instead of just
- a user information lookup
-   This guarantees that all group information is available to other
-   providers, such as the simple provider.
- For backwards-compatibility, DNS lookups will also fall back to trying the
- SSSD domain name as a DNS discovery domain.
- Support for more password expiration policies in LDAP
-    389 Directory Server
-    FreeIPA
-    ActiveDirectory
- Support for ldap_tls_{cert,key,cipher_suite} config options
