Description ralford 2018-04-12 16:25:31 UTC
Description of problem:
pam_faillock.so currently has no way of ignoring local users in /etc/passwd.
This causes problems where compliance organizations require faillock to be configured on all systems, and those systems are centrally managed with IdM or AD. Adding a local_users_only option to faillock would prevent issues with a centralized user account being locked out locally with faillock and centrally with IdM or AD. It would also make it easier and less error prone to configure system-auth and password-auth.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All pam_faillock versions/releases

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
faillock configurations locks out both local and centralized users. local_users_only is not an option

Expected results:
faillock configurations locks out both local but not centralized users. local_users_only is an option

Comment 8 Simo Sorce 2019-02-11 15:41:04 UTC
This issue was not selected to be included either in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.7 because it is seen either as low or moderate impact to a small amount of use-cases. The next release will be in Maintenance Support 1 Phase, which means that qualified Critical and Important Security errata advisories (RHSAs) and Urgent Priority Bug Fix errata advisories (RHBAs) may be released as they become available. We will now close this issue, but if you believe that it qualifies for the Maintenance Support 1 Phase, please re-open; otherwise we recommend moving the request to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 if applicable.
