SSSD - System Security Services Daemon

SSSD is a system daemon. Its primary function is to provide access to identity and authentication remote resource through a common framework that can provide caching and offline support to the system. It provides PAM and NSS modules, and in the future will D-BUS based interfaces for extended user information. It provides also a better database to store local users as well as extended user data.

Documentation on configuring SSSD in Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux is available from Fedora 15 Deployment Guide for SSSD.

If you're looking for information on configuring SSSD on non-Fedora/RHEL systems, there is a HOWTO available.
