Description Niels de Vos 2010-10-04 16:39:55 EDT
Please consider the inclusion of a patch to OpenSSH which provides local and remote forwarding of Unix domain sockets, similar to the port forwarding capabilities of OpenSSH and the SecSH protocol.

The patch (for OpenSSH-4.7) is available here:
- http://www.25thandclement.com/~william/projects/streamlocal.html

And the upstream bug report (RFE) here:
- https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1256
Comment 1 Jan F. Chadima 2010-10-05 03:02:14 EDT
The upstream does not accept, nor verify the path.
The patch is for version 4.7 current version is 5.6.
The the unix domain tunneling may led to various security issues, because unix domain sockes are considered as local.
