Description Chris Runge 2007-03-19 19:55:03 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #232993 +++

Requirement for FIPS 200

NIST 800-53
The information system limits the number of concurrent sessions for any user to
[Assignment: organization-defined number of sessions].


According to sgrubb:

"Just checked with pam maintainer and he feels that pam_limits covers this one. 
I think we should have the rejection tied to the audit system. So, we are 
closer than I thought. It should work so that we can check that item off, but 
we can make it better."

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2008-04-04 11:53:43 UTC
pam_limits is in RHEL-4 already the rejects based on concurrent sessions are
just not explicitely audited -> closing as NEXTRELEASE as RHEL-5 is fixed.
