Fedora 8 Update: pam_mount-0.48-2.fc8

Fedora Update Notification
2008-09-16 04:22:01

Name        : pam_mount
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.48
Release     : 2.fc8
URL         : http://pam-mount.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : A PAM module that can mount volumes for a user session
Description :
This module is aimed at environments with central file servers that a
user wishes to mount on login and unmount on logout, such as
(semi-)diskless stations where many users can logon.

The module also supports mounting local filesystems of any kind the
normal mount utility supports, with extra code to make sure certain
volumes are set up properly because often they need more than just a
mount call, such as encrypted volumes. This includes SMB/CIFS, NCP,
davfs2, FUSE, losetup crypto, dm-crypt/cryptsetup and truecrypt.

If you intend to use pam_mount to protect volumes on your computer
using an encrypted filesystem system, please know that there are many
other issues you need to consider in order to protect your data.  For
example, you probably want to disable or encrypt your swap partition.
Don't assume a system is secure without carefully considering
potential threats.

Update Information:

This update fixes two bugs:    1) The bug reported in Red Hat Bugzilla 462155:
In case you updated to pam_mount-0.47 on Fedora 8 or from Fedora 8 (with a
pam_mount version older than 0.47) to a newer release of Fedora, you probably
need to rerun the script to convert your pam_mount config file.    All commands
need to be run as root.    First create a backup of the old converted config
file:  # cp /etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml
/etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml.backup_version_0.47    Then re-run the
conversion script:  # convert_pam_mount_conf.pl <
/etc/security/pam_mount.conf.rpmsave > /etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml    If
you use per user configuration files, you probably need to convert them with the
updated script, too.    2) The decryption needed to be done when you use the
fskeypath-option was broken in the previous release of pam_mount and libHX. With
pam_mount 0.48 and libHX 1.25 it should work again.      In case you did update
from pam_mount with version less than 0.47:  The pam_mount facility now uses a
configuration file written in XML. The /etc/security/pam_mount.conf file will be
converted to /etc/security/pam_mount.conf.xml during update with
/usr/bin/convert_pam_mount_conf.pl, which removes all comments. Any per-user
configuration files must be converted manually, with the conversion script if
desired. A sample pam_mount.conf.xml file with detailed comments about the
available options appears at /usr/share/doc/pam_mount-*/pam_mount.conf.xml.
