Open SourceIn OpenBSD source tree code integrated with the new daemon identd IDENT protocol implementation (RFC 1413), designed to identify the user organization, establishing TCP-connection.

New identd developed in the depths of the OpenBSD project as a safe, high-performance replacement of the original BSD identd, caused by inetd.

New implementation itself handles the connection and starts to form a background process, and connections are handled in non-blocking mode using libevent. At the expense of the competent organization handling network connections and avoid the overhead associated with the launch of a new process for each request using inetd, the new implementation can dramatically increase the performance of the service IDENT. In addition, the new identd possible to parallel processing of client connections. Continue reading
