[ $Id: README 80 2004-08-19 16:19:18Z flovergine $ ] Yet Another Radius Daemon (YardRadius) 1. Introduction --------------- This program is a RADIUS RFC-compliant daemon, which is derived from original Livingston Enterprise Inc. (now Lucent Inc.) RADIUS daemon release 2.1. It adds a number of useful features to the LE daemon, i.e. Control of simultaneous logins. Support of Ascend, Cisco and USR boxes. Extended daily/monthly/yearly accouting information on a per-user basis. MD5 encrypted passwords support (both in passwd file and/or users file). Expirations in shadow file. Checking based on time-of-day, traffic and connection time. Support of PAM authentication and accounting. Binary form of accounting file. GDBM formats for users and user stats databases. Autoconfiguring capabilities of sources. Support for Ascend binary data filters (aka abinary attributes). It supports also all features of Lucent daemon, i.e.: Proxy RADIUS ActivCard and iPass Support (not tested by me) Accounting Signatures Now Required Vendor Specific Attributes Virtual Ports Alternate Password File Address Binding Improved Messages Enhanced Debugging All sources are much cleaner than the original versions, and require an ANSI C compiler. A lots of potential buffer overflows have been corrected by means of massive use of snprintf() and buffer size checking.

References ------------- YardRadius Wiki: http://yardradius.org YardRadius Project at SF: https://sourceforge.net/projects/yardradius/ Mailing list: email@example.com YardRadius is also currently included in Debian GNU/Linux since version 3.0 (woody). I'm also currently the Debian Maintainer of that package (and many others as well). The Debian packages are available at http://packages.debian.org/cgi-bin/search_packages.pl?keywords=yardradius&searchon=names&subword=1&version=all&release=all As far as I know, these are the only binary packages available, you generally needs to compile it from scratch. 3. Development Roadmap ---------------------- Read the ROADMAP file in order to know what is the status of development and what versions are available. You are invited to participate to the development process by submitting patches and bug reports.
