Package description for 'slidentd'

A secure, lightweight ident (RFC1413) daemon for Linux.

 slidentd is a minimal ident (RFC1413) daemon which runs from inetd,
 xinetd, or tcpserver. It is similar in purpose to pidentd, which is
 installed with most Linux systems. However its design goals are somewhat
 different. It was written because the author wanted a very small, simple
 daemon that would not give out any sensitive information (such as
 usernames). In this regard it is not RFC compliant (RFC 1413 requires
 the daemon to be insecure by default with secure settings as an option).
 Instead of returning the username it returns a random token, but 
 logs both the token and the actual username.
