Project Summary

lookupd is a daemon for proxying name service lookups on behalf of
applications. It is distinct from the conventional NSS system in that
it performs lookups in an independent long-running process, which
allows more flexibility.
lookupd is intended for scenarios where name lookups are performed
over the network (for example, in an LDAP directory). There is
presently little point in using it if all name lookups are performed
against local world-readable files, as is conventional on unix
systems.
For compatibility, an NSS module is provided which passes all queries
to lookupd, and lookupd itself can use other NSS modules to make
queries. By using both these features in combination, lookupd should
be a drop-in enhancement to any existing NSS system.
