bsidentd provides a minimal and secure identd server that can generate random usernames.
bsidentd is a bare minimum and secure identd server, based on nullidentd. It can generate a random string for a username. It makes IRC servers happy, and it helps avoid ban scripts by not having a fixed username.
Alternately, a fixed username can be specified on the command line.
Installation? The usual. Check the makefile, 'make install' then add an entry to
auth stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/nullidentd
What's New in This Release:
· Added query limit.
· Patch from Sven Oliver Moll to allow a username to be specified on the command line. bsidentd can now fully replace nullidentd.
