Cause: When ipa-client-install is run with --password option containing a bulk password for client enrollment, the password may be printed to IPA client install log in a plain-text format.
Consequence: Any user that get access to this fail may read the password
Fix: ipa-client-install does not log the bulk enrollment password
Result: User with access to the log cannot retrieve the password
Verified using ipa-client-2.1.3-8.el6.x86_64 & ipa-server-2.1.3-8.el6.x86_64
added client as host, set its otp, then installed using cmd below:
#ipa-client-install --domain=testrelm --realm=TESTRELM --password=1234
ipaclient-install logs have it as:
2011-11-04 09:57:34,793 DEBUG args=/usr/sbin/ipa-join -s ipa-master.testrelm -b dc=testrelm -w XXXXXXXX
But from comments above - this should be verified using 5.7 client. Started beaker job to provision one.
