Description Jeff Hardy 2005-10-05 20:38:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
The openssh-lpk patch allows for sshd to read authorized_keys info from an LDAP server, and to do group-based authentication of a user.  I am not one of the developers, but have rolled my own RPMs incorporating the patch to deploy on our site.  Very, very useful.  The patch requires minimal fussing to fit into the current chain of Fedora openssh patches.

Additional info:

I have not done much serious work with RPM packaging, so please let me know what I can improve.  Attached is my source RPM for FC4, and diffs of my spec file and the modified patch file.

Any news?
Might be useful for FreeIPA.

Comment 6 Tomas Mraz 2008-04-03 14:46:02 UTC
Unfortunately it was not included upstream yet and we should not increase the
number of non-upstreamed patches in openssh as there are already way too many.
