Fixed In Version: sssd-1.14.0-0.2.beta1.el7 Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Under certain circumstances, the algorithm in the Privilege Attribute Certificate (PAC) responder component of the System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) does not effectively handle users who are members of a large number of groups. As a consequence, logging from Windows clients to Red Hat Enterprise Linux clients with Kerberos single sign-on (SSO) can be noticeably slow. There is currently no known workaround available.

Hello Jakub,

We have a customer running RHEL-7.2 who might benefit from this fix, can we get a test package incorporating this fix?

Thank you,

Now response is much faster to process large group lists compare to 7.2(sssd-1.13.0-40.el7.x86_64) 
Please find the attached file which contains console output.
