       sssd-session-recording - Configuring session recording with SSSD


       This manual page describes how to configure sssd(8) to work with tlog-rec-session(8), a
       part of tlog package, to implement user session recording on text terminals. For a
       detailed configuration syntax reference, refer to the “FILE FORMAT” section of the
       sssd.conf(5) manual page.

       SSSD can be set up to enable recording of everything specific users see or type during
       their sessions on text terminals. E.g. when users log in on the console, or via SSH. SSSD
       itself doesn't record anything, but makes sure tlog-rec-session is started upon user
       login, so it can record according to its configuration.

       For users with session recording enabled, SSSD replaces the user shell with
       tlog-rec-session in NSS responses, and adds a variable specifying the original shell to
       the user environment, upon PAM session setup. This way tlog-rec-session can be started in
       place of the user shell, and know which actual shell to start, once it set up the


       These options can be used to configure the session recording.

       scope (string)
           One of the following strings specifying the scope of session recording:

               No users are recorded.

               Users/groups specified by users and groups options are recorded.

               All users are recorded.

           Default: "none"

       users (string)
           A comma-separated list of users which should have session recording enabled. Matches
           user names as returned by NSS. I.e. after the possible space replacement, case
           changes, etc.

           Default: Empty. Matches no users.

       groups (string)
           A comma-separated list of groups, members of which should have session recording
           enabled. Matches group names as returned by NSS. I.e. after the possible space
           replacement, case changes, etc.

           NOTE: using this option (having it set to anything) has a considerable performance
           cost, because each uncached request for a user requires retrieving and matching the
           groups the user is member of.

           Default: Empty. Matches no groups.


       The following snippet of sssd.conf enables session recording for users "contractor1" and
       "contractor2", and group "students".

           scope = some
           users = contractor1, contractor2
           groups = students
