NSS module for using PostgreSQL as a naming service

This module works as a replacement for the flat file databases /etc/passwd, /etc/group etc. It is a plugin to glibc's name service switch.

The module uses tables in a PostgreSQL database to store user, group, and shadow information. The module can be configured to use custom queries to retrieve it's information from a database. The module allows to separate the configuration for shadow information from group and user information to restrict access to shadow information to privileged users (i.e. root or the shadow group).

Package version:1.4.0debian-5


0. What's it about?

This is a so called Name Service Switch (NSS) Module for use with glibc.
With it you can replace /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group etc. with
a PostgreSQL database. Note that you need another piece of software, a
plugin to the Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) that lets you
authenticate against this database.
