A simple, free and open source faked ident daemon
Version: 1.2.1fauxident is a free and small Python script that will act as an extremely naive ident server, automatically answering all ident requests with a consistent response -- either a USERID response or an ERROR.
Operating System: Mac OS X
This can be advantageous on systems where running a true identd is unavailable, where it would be a security risk, or when masquerading firewalls are in use, where multiple machines are involved behind the firewall and running a proper ident system is not an option.
An ident server is intended to get information on correlations between client and server ports on a machine, and connect them to the user involved with using it. ident is used implicitly by some other services; for instance, many IRC servers check for ident responses from connecting clients, and some in fact will reject clients which do not have an ident server running.
