[#646] Passwords hashes are visible in nss_passwd



Detailed description

Passwords hashes are visible in nsspasswd, while this is normally restricted to nssshadow.

As a fix we can: - add another gforgenssroot user with a view on nssshadow, - add a password-based authentication for gforgenssroot in /etc/nss-pgsql-root.conf - return 'x' as the password field in nsspasswd

ITK requires a way to authenticate the user, using user (non-root) privileges. Currently password hashes are already leaked in 'scm-passwd'.

The only way I found to avoid this is to rely on mod-authnz-external+pwauth , which is not packaged for CentOS 7.

Moving to wishlist.
