Re: Pam password authentication

Title: Re: Pam password authentication

I came across a similar bug where enabling chaining between a master and slave allows invalid passwords to be accepted by pam_ldap. Unfortunately, no word from OpenLDAP or pam_ldap maintainers on the issue. I have been looking at pam_ldap source code but haven’t been able to pinpoint the issue. In my case, it has something to do with password policy not being handled properly when chaining is enabled. I suggest try tweaking those “pam_password” statements and see if you can deduce anything.

I will update the list if I find anything conclusive about this bug.
