FreeIPA stands for Free Identity Policy Audit.
FreeIPA is a solution for managing users, groups, hosts, services, and much, much more. It uses open source solutions with some Python glue to make things work. Identity Management made easy for the Linux administrator.
Inside FreeIPA are some common pieces; The Apache Web Server, BIND, 389DS, and MIT Kerberos. Additionally, Dogtag is used for certificate management, and sssd for client side configurations. Put that all together with some python glue, and you have FreeIPA. (more…)
