Oidentd allows users, given the proper permission, to specify the identd response that the server will output when a successful lookup is completed. Oidentd also allows for pseudo-random strings (either a prefix, such as "user," followed by a number between 0 and 99999, or 10 pseudo-random characters of the set 0-9A-Za-z) to be returned upon the completion of a successful lookup instead of a username or a UID.
Oidentd supports IPv4 masqueraded connections, including netfilter.

Documentation: ============== Rick Dicaire <firstname.lastname@example.org> discovered, that by default if ipv4 and ipv6 addresses for an interface are present, oidentd only uses the ipv4 address. A workaround is to set /proc/sys/net/ipv6/bindv6only to 1 according to http://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/online/pages/man7/ipv6.7.html
