SSSD - System Security Services Daemon
SSSD provides a set of daemons to manage access to remote directories and authentication mechanisms such as LDAP, Kerberos or FreeIPA. It provides an NSS and PAM interface toward the system and a pluggable backend system to connect to multiple different account sources.
More information about SSSD can be found on its project page - https://pagure.io/SSSD/sssd/

SSSD maintains two release streams - stable and LTM. Releases designated as LTM are long-term maintenance releases and will see bugfixes and security patches for a longer time than other releases.
