Looking to temporarily spoil a PKI cert in OpenLdap

Linux Questions - Thu, 02/02/2023 - 18:23
I'm running OpenLDAP v 2.4.44 on Red Hat 7/8.

Background
We have 3 web applications that require passwordless authentication to access.
Two of these applications use UserID, the public PKI key, and look for membership in the proper group for access.
The third just checks the UserID and membership in the appropriate group.

There is no requirement to log in to our network. These URLs are available remotely, however the user must still have an account on our system.

Lockouts
If a user hasn't logged in for a while, one of our sysadmins will "lock" their account in LDAP. This is done either by changing their password or setting the pwdAccountLockoutTime in their LDAP record.

We have noticed that OpenSSH (v7.4) does not consult LDAP before allowing access. Therefore, locked users who use SSH keys to log in to the system are still granted access.

To prevent this, we are temporarily adding 2 dashes '--' to their login shell name. i.e. /bin/ksh becomes --/bin/ksh. This prevents them from logging in.

When the user calls to 'complain,' we politely remind them that they need to log in periodically to prevent lockouts & deletions. We then unlock the account and 'un-mangle' the login shell.

The Problem
Locking the users account in the manner does not prevent access to the Web Apps.

The initial thought is to 'mangle' or somehow temporarily invalidate their PKI key. This would need to be done in a controllable way so it can be easily undone.

This would at least prevent access to the first 2 Web Apps.

Question
Can this be done? IF so, how?
Is there another way to do this?

Thanks,
-S

LXer: Exploring Rust for Vulkan drivers, part 1

Linux Questions - Thu, 02/02/2023 - 16:51
Published at LXer:

Over the course of the last decade, Rust has emerged as a new programming language for writing safe low-level code. How practical would it be to write a Vulkan driver mostly in Rust? Would doing so bring enough benefit to be worth the effort? In the first of a series, Faith Ekstrand explores the area of using Rust to write Mesa Vulkan drivers.

Is Google (android and chrome?) really built from source ?

Linux Questions - Thu, 02/02/2023 - 16:22
My question is simply: Can (chrome OS) be built from scratch or is Google keeping that private? Can Android be built from scratch by (say LFS) (n.i. chinese bins) or does it required Ubuntu (and any src builds fail on ubu incl. andy - i google'ed it)?

So I was "hoping" google Android can be built - ie i make my own Android and upload it to my phone (and after you stop laughing...). I was actually hoping to run it as my unix desktop also - like android x86 is "planning" but not done with yet (it works only with certain laptops).

I looked in Google's build directory (i tried DL'ing by instructions: i was blocked by google server from downloads and found forums admitting it was doing that). Another hold back: google drive req's "go" and is binary only. But i don't run binaries that "don't build" off microsoft GITHUB - so i cannot buy google drive space. (maybe i should)

I saw a large folder: some things were built - many things were mystery bins uploaded by (chinese?) mfg. Many "projects" were binary from source builds already built uploaded from (idk - maybe ubu) - not built by google actually.

I saw complaints that "Android build failed" not news of INDIE programmers building it though.

I ASSUME seeing it all "ubu is required to build android", that google doesn't have it's own OS per say. And LFS cannot build chrome desktop (x86 android) from scratch. And that even google isn't actually fully building it's own releases in large? And probably use bleh - emulators for x86 running in X.

But that is the question.

My screen is now blank

Linux Questions - Thu, 02/02/2023 - 14:12
{stroke 2011, brain-damaged, short term memory loss}

*:Running Debian bookworm, under KDE I do 2-3 updates a day
and I guess I got "bitten" by an update, because my screen is now blank,
I can do a "open wallpaper image" and it looks fine,
I do a "next wallpaper image" and hit it with an open image and it has changed.

QUESTION: do I just "suck it up" and wait for another update, about a week,
or should I freak out and panic immediately?

Just wondering...

{for some reason, call them evil-spirits, I cannot get updates from the testing distribution... what's up with that?}

Thank you for reading my question, and have a wonderful day!

What is RCS -o "outdate"

Linux Questions - Thu, 02/02/2023 - 12:21
I've been using RCS for many years, but not every feature. I'm wondering about the -o (outdate) option. The man page says,
Quote: -orange
deletes (“outdates”) the revisions given by range. A range consisting of a single revision number means that revision. A
range consisting of a branch number means the latest revision on that branch. A range of the form rev1:rev2 means revisions
rev1 to rev2 on the same branch, :rev means from the beginning of the branch containing rev up to and including rev, and rev:
means from revision rev to the end of the branch containing rev. None of the outdated revisions can have branches or locks. So, here's what I want to do (and maybe -o isn't the answer). I have a revision 1.1 that is not correct and I would like to revert back to version 1.0, but not lose what I did in 1.1 for future reference. I.e. I'd like to keep 1.1 in the ,v file.

How would I do this?
