Silk Tree is a tool that propagates /etc/passwd and /etc/group files from a master to a list of hosts via SSH. The sending and receiving ends connect to each other as a non-root user. A read-only sudo program on the receiver's side makes the final modifications in /etc.
Many checks are made to ensure reliable authorization updates. ACLs are used to enforce a simple security policy. Differences between old and new versions are shown. Two small scripts are included for exporting LDAP users and groups.
