Recorded at SUSECON 2016 as session TUT85751

The System Security Services Daemon (SSSD), available on nearly all Linux distributions, is fast becoming the Linux server authentication framework of choice. The SSSD is capable of implementing modern, scalable, secure and highly available authentication infrastructures. Linux administrators and enterprises alike have been waiting for the AD integration and agility the SSSD provides.

The most innovative features include offline authentication, the concurrent use of multiple authentication methods against multiple back ends, and Linux server Active Directory participation approaching the compatibility of a domain member server.

This session covers baseline Linux system and Active Directory preparation for the SSSD, the concepts of SSSD identity, authentication, and service providers, daemon configuration and operational tips learned in the trenches.
