Description

The OpenSSH LPK (LDAP Public Key) patch [[http://code.google.com/p/openssh-lpk/]] provides for LDAP storage of pubkeys. This patch has been submitted [[https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1316]] to the OpenSSH upstream but not accepted. Given the decision to fork SUNWssh off of OpenSSH, it may nevertheless be acceptable to add the patch or an equivalent into Illumos. I've added a comment to the OpenSSH RFE trying to determine why kind of patch would be acceptable to them, such that Illumos could then pick up that patch.

There's interest in supporting this for use in the OI infra.

History

Updated by Bayard Bell over 8 years ago

Searching through the openssh-unix-dev archives [[http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=openssh-unix-dev&r=1&w=2]], I came across an RFE with a patch [[https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1663]] that's been integrated by RedHat but not the mainline yet. I see from various mail threads that Mark Cavage from Joyent has remained engaged (albeit as a non-core developer for Portable OpenSSH), will seek his feedback.
