Fedora Update Notification
2011-08-30 20:32:14

Name        : sssd
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.6.1
Release     : 1.fc16
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:

* Fixes a serious issue with LDAP connections when the communication is dropped (e.g. VPN disconnection, waking from sleep)
* SSSD is now less strict when dealing with users/groups with multiple names when a definitive primary name cannot be determined
* The LDAP provider will no longer attempt to canonicalize by default when using SASL. An option to re-enable this has been provided.
* Fixes for non-standard LDAP attribute names (e.g. those used by Active Directory)
* Three HBAC regressions have been fixed.
* Fix for an infinite loop in the deref code 

  [ 1 ] Bug #727777 - Two typos in SSSD man pages

  [ 3 ] Bug #733287 - pyhbac-test.py fails
