Last modified: 2013-07-03 00:23:39 EDT
3. What is the nature and description of the request?
Need to have sssd check the user's host attribute, similar to how nss_ldap
"pam_check_host_attr yes" config worked.
4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements
Currently there is no way to configure host-based access control without
involving IPA. Customer would have to revert back to pam_ldap or maintain
their own sssd package.
5. How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional

6. For each functional requirement listed in question 4, specify how
Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is
Configure sssd.conf with access_provider=ldap and ldap_access_order=host.
Verify that sssd checks the host attribute in the user's ldap entry to
determine access privilege.
7. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat bugzilla?
Fixed upstream through <https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/746>.

Cause: SSSD had no facility for comparing the contents of the 'authorizedHost' attribute of a user to the hostname on the client system.
Consequence: Users of SSSD could not take advantage of the functionality in pam_ldap provided by the pam_check_host_attr option.
Change: SSSD added a new feature and option to the LDAP access_provider, allowing users to enable the behavior of pam_check_host_attr.
Result: SSSD users can now set the 'ldap_access_order = host' and 'ldap_user_authorized_host' options to enable access-control based on the presence of this attribute in LDAP.
