NAME

       nss_sshsock - NSS module which works over an ssh master socket

DESCRIPTION

       nss_sshsock is a library which allows a system to obtain name service information over an
       ssh master socket.

       The socket is needed on a per-user basis.  In other words, each user on the system will
       need their own socket in order to obtain name service information over.

       The following environment variables are used by the module: NSS_SSHSOCK_SOCKET and
       NSS_SSHSOCK_HOST.

       The NSS_SSHSOCK_SOCKET variable should provide a path to where the master socket is
       stored.

       The NSS_SSHSOCK_HOST variable provides the host which the ssh socket is connected to.

       In the event that the environment variables are not defined, or the socket is not owned by
       the user, the NSS module will do nothingi.
