Description

Configure user authentication setup to use the authselect tool. If authselect profile is selected, the rule will enable the sssd profile.

Rationale

Authselect is a successor to authconfig. It is a tool to select system authentication and identity sources from a list of supported profiles instead of letting the administrator manually build the PAM stack.

That way, it avoids potential breakage of configuration, as it ships several tested profiles that are well tested and supported to solve different use-cases.

Remediation

Shell script

The following script can be run on the host to remediate the issue.

#!/bin/bash

var_authselect_profile='sssd'


authselect select "$var_authselect_profile"

if test "$?" -ne 0; then
    if rpm --quiet --verify pam; then
        authselect select --force "$var_authselect_profile"
    else
	echo "Files in the 'pam' package have been altered, so the authselect configuration won't be forced" >&2
    fi
fi

Ansible playbook

The following playbook can be run with Ansible to remediate the issue.

Warning

If the sudo authselect select command returns an error informing that the chosen profile cannot be selected, it is probably because PAM files have already been modified by the administrator. If this is the case, in order to not overwrite the desired changes made by the administrator, the current PAM settings should be investigated before forcing the selection of the chosen authselect profile.
