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.
