The Ridentd server application is meant for the totally paranoid that need access to servers that require ident and don't want to give any information about local users to the remote server or its other users. Ridentd is a stand-alone replacement for identd that uses a random selection of a ispell dictionary to use as fake ident responses. The ident response is based on a (one-time randomly initialized) modulus of the local port in order to assure that one session will return the same identity during a TCP session.
Release Notes: Addresses a serious locally exploitable symlink bug that allowed a random local file to be overwritten to with the process ID of the newly started daemon.
Release Notes: This release adds a minor bugfix for defunct children.
