slidentd: A secure and lightweight ident (RFC1413) daemon for Linux1

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.
