#1490 SSSD does not close TCP connections when SSL fails
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by jhrozek.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=849081 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6)

Description of problem: SSSD does not close TCP connections if SSL fails, for
example, if I use ldaps:// as the ldap_uri, SSL failes with error
"hostname does not match CN in peer certificate" however SSSD does not attempt
to close the established connection, and for the next request SSSD opens a new
connection.. this is repeated until the ldap server run out of available

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sssd-1.8.0-32.el6

How reproducible: Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup an ldap server with SSL
2. Copy the CA certificate to Client
3. Configure SSSD with ldap_uri=ldaps://ip.address or a hostname(short) which
does not match the CN in the certificate.

Actual results:
SSSD fails to connect to ldap server due to CN mismatch, sssd does not close
the existing connection and open new on next request.

Expected results:
SSSD fails to connect to ldap server due to CN mismatch, it closes the existing

Additional info: This could cause DOS on ldap server, especially if the client
is configured with 'enumerate=true'. I have not notice the issue with start_tls
( ldap_uri ldap:// & use secure connection for id look-up set).
