Description Tomas Hoger 2009-02-19 04:09:52 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #478446 +++

It would be good to include configuration examples in the pam_ccreds package, that would make it easier for users to configure this pam module correctly in their environments.  As shown in the original bug, incorrect configuration may result in insecure setups if not tested properly.

Knowledge base article may be a viable (preferred?) alternative to adding additional documentation to the pam_ccreds packages.  The additional benefit of the knowledge base article is that it is easier to cover configurations for multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions, emphasizing the differences between versions.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-03-26 13:08:55 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
