Package Info

nss_wrapper


A wrapper for the user, group and hosts NSS API


Development/Libraries/C and C++

There are projects which provide daemons that need to be able to create, modify and delete Unix users, or just switch user IDs to interact with the system, e.g. a user space file server. To be able to test that, you need the privilege to modify the passwd and groups files. With nss_wrapper, it is possible to define your own passwd and groups files which will be used by software to act correctly while under test.

If you have a client and server under test, they normally use functions to resolve network names to addresses (DNS) or vice versa. The nss_wrappers allow you to create a hosts file to setup name resolution for the addresses you use with socket_wrapper.

To use it, set the following environment variables:

LD_PRELOAD=libuid_wrapper.so NSS_WRAPPER_PASSWD=/path/to/passwd NSS_WRAPPER_GROUP=/path/to/group NSS_WRAPPER_HOSTS=/path/to/host

This package does not have a devel package, because this project is for development/testing.
