CID (Closed In Directory) is a set of scripts for inserting and managing Linux stations in an "Active Directory" domain.
The modifications made in the system through the application allows the Linux station to behave similarly to a Windows station, within the context of this scenario, enabling a series of actions and functionalities such as:
- Execution of centrally stored and managed logon scripts on the domain server, including automatic mapping of network shares (files and printers);
- Cache of the logins credentials allowing recidivist access of users of the domain when there is no possibility of communication between the station and the authentication server;
- Compatibility of administrative permissions on the Linux system with the administrative privileges of users "domain administrators".
Note: CID uses the "samba" and "pam_mount" projects.
- cid-gtk: Simple Graphical Tool in GTK+ that presents the functionalities of the application intuitively.
- cid: Command-line Utility noninteractive interface that has the purpose of automating the execution of the various functions of the CID.
- cid-change-pass-gtk: Graph utility (GTK+) to help domain users change their passwords
- cid-change-pass: Command-line utility to help domain users change their passwords
C-i-d is great! Thanks.
Nice and simple.
