Dear Colleagues,

Do you think there exists a modern solution for centralized user/group/...
management compatible with FreeBSD and Linux?

I have experience using NIS on FreeBSD for many years, but NIS is really ve=
ry
dated, not very secure, depends on the NIS servers being reachable all the
time, depends on Sun RPC (portmapper, dynamic ports) and has other
drawbacks. I know this from experience.

Are there any modern solutions for FreeBSD hosts to have at least a common
user/userid/group/groupid database, or maybe even more centralized goodies?

I've been told that Linux has FreeIPA, but I think it's not fully
compatible with FreeBSD, and besides security/sssd wants so many
dependencies (even MIT Kerberos as if FreeBSD's built-in Kerberos is not
good enough).

Any success stories?
