#1687 Disallow root SSH public key authentication
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by jcholast.

pam_sss does not allow users named "root" to authenticate. Do the same thing for SSH by rejecting public key requests for users named "root" in sss_ssh_authorizedkeys.

Not a security issue -- someone would have to create a user named "root" on the IPA server and if someone has the power to create users on IPA server, we're busted anyway.

Honza says the patch is two lines. I think 1.9.4 makes sense.
