Name        : sssd
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.4.1
Release     : 3.fc11
URL         : http://fedorahosted.org/sssd
Summary     : System Security Services Daemon
Description :
Provides a set of daemons to manage access to remote directories and
authentication mechanisms. It provides an NSS and PAM interface toward
the system and a pluggable backend system to connect to multiple different
account sources. It is also the basis to provide client auditing and policy
services for projects like FreeIPA.

Update Information:

If a user was added to the SSSD BE database without setting a password, the user
could ssh to the SSSD configured client and enter any password to gain access.
This update resolves this issue so users with no password set are no longer able
to login.
