PFinger is a highly configurable, secure and portable finger deamon. It is started by inetd but does not run as root. The service may be disabled for individual users by the administrator or by the users themselves. It offers configurable special files (e.g. a users PGP-Key could be retrieved with 'finger john.pgpkey@host), no printing of users home directory or shell and it also provides a graphical frontend that allows users to easily alter the output that will be sent, when they are fingerd.
