1This is nss_nonlocal, an nsswitch module that acts as a proxy for other
2nsswitch modules like hesiod, but prevents non-local users from
3potentially gaining local privileges by spoofing local UIDs and GIDs.
5To use it, configure /etc/nsswitch.conf as follows:
7passwd:         compat nonlocal
8passwd_nonlocal: hesiod
9group:          compat nonlocal
10group_nonlocal: hesiod
