Description Nathan Kinder 2012-06-20 14:08:18 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/183

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=740527

{{{
Description of problem:

The revocation error process is triggered not when maximum number of
tries is reached but the next time after.
This seems to have changed in Sun DS 6 and is considered the right
behaviour and is required by customer applications.

Example: say we configure 3 tries maximum for revocation, the flow is
the following:

1st try: Invalid password
2nd try: Invalid password
3rd try: Invalid password
4th try and next : Revoked password

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
8.2

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define maximum number of login tries to 3
2. Login with wrong password until password is revoked
3.

Actual results:
1st try: Invalid password
2nd try: Invalid password
3rd try: Invalid password
4th try and next : Revoked password



Expected results:
1st try: Invalid password
2nd try: Invalid password
3rd try and next : Revoked password

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 03:10:13 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 19:02:07 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

Comment 6 Ján Rusnačko 2012-10-24 07:59:22 EDT
Steps to verify:

1) Enable password lockout:
ldapmodify -h localhost -p 22222 -D "cn=directory manager" -w password << EOF
dn: cn=config
changetype: modify
replace: passwordLockout
passwordLockout: on
EOF

2) Set password max failure to 3:
ldapmodify -h localhost -p 22222 -D "cn=directory manager" -w password << EOF
dn: cn=config
changetype: modify
replace: passwordMaxFailure 
passwordMaxFailure: 3
EOF

3) Set passwordLegacyPolicy to off:
ldapmodify -h localhost -p 22222 -D "cn=directory manager" -w password << EOF
dn: cn=config
changetype: modify
replace: passwordLegacyPolicy
passwordLegacyPolicy: off
EOF

4) Add user:
ldapmodify -h localhost -p 22222 -D "cn=directory manager" -w password << EOF
dn: $MYDN
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
cn: test user0
sn: user0
givenName: test
userPassword: password
EOF

5) Try to bind 2 times with incorrect password and check that return code is 49:
ldapsearch -h localhost -p 22222 -D "$MYDN" -w "invalidPassword" -b "$BASE" "uid=$MYUID" 
echo $?
49
 $LDAPSEARCH -h $LDAPhost -p $LDAPport -D "$MYDN" -w "invalidPassword" -b "$BASE" "uid=$MYUID" 
echo $?
49

6) Try to bind third time with incorrect password:
 $LDAPSEARCH -h $LDAPhost -p $LDAPport -D "$MYDN" -w "invalidPassword" -b "$BASE" "uid=$MYUID" 
echo $?
19
