Description Daniel Wittenberg 2003-03-19 20:14:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020823

Description of problem:
# grep pam_krb /etc/pam.d/system-auth

auth	    sufficient	  /lib/security/ minimum_uid=15 use_first_pass
password    required      /lib/security/ use_authtok minimum_uid=15
session	    sufficient	  /lib/security/ minimum_uid=15

Then when I try to login via ssh as root:

pam_krb5: authenticate error: Clients credentials have been revoked (-1765328366)
pam_krb5: authentication fails for `root'
Failed password for root from x.x.x.x port 48196 ssh2

If minimum_uid doesn't try the UID, then how does it know the credentials have
been revoked?  I have disabled all 'standard' accounts like root 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set the minimum_uid and try to login

Expected Results:  pam_krb5 ignores that user and drops to next module

I also have reproduced this problem.  It allows logins for default accounts 
like rpm if someone with AD rights feels like creating one.

Comment 2 Wayne Buttles 2003-05-09 16:24:14 UTC
Nevermind.  I figured out that it belongs in [appdefaults] / pam = 
in /etc/krb5.conf and seems to work fine there.

Shouldn't it be a RedHat default?  And shouldn't it be 100 and not 15?  The rpm 
user is wide open at uid 37.
