Description Daniel Qarras 2009-06-13 12:45:08 EDT
Description of problem:
As per https://www.redhat.com/archives/freeipa-users/2009-June/msg00040.html it might in some cases be useful to allow cached entries to expire also when offline. For example, an organization may have a policy that all users must change they passwords twice a month - in that case it would be non-compliant that a user can keep using his password "forever" if offline.

Additional info:

Ok, here we have 2 separate issues.
one is the user/groups cache, another is the credentials cache (hashed, cached password).

What we need to "expire" are only credential caches.
It should be harmless to keep around user/group caches.

Since this is upstreamed at https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/60 I'll close this one.
