#2358 [PATCH] sss_cache flush ssh host keys.
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by firstyear.

When you rebuild a host in a freeipa environment, the SSH key is regenerated and reuploaded to freeipa. However, this is cached in sssd on a workstation and is placed into known_hosts: It essentially means you are locked out of any host that you have rebuilt or rolled the ssh key on.

This patch (Discussed on the mailing list) corrects this behaviour, and allows an ssh host key to be expired and not inserted into the known hosts.


Thank you for the reminder, I pinged Honza to continue reviewing the latest version of sssd-devel. It's also fine to ping us on the mailing list in case the reply stalls (which might happen sometimes, sorry..)

I'm putting this ticket to 1.12.1 for now, I think that's when the work can land just fine. If the patch is not ready by then, we just push the patch further.
