High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Ident Protocol,
specified in RFC 1413, is an Internet protocol that helps identify
the user of a particular TCP connection. One popular daemon program
for providing the ident service is identd.The Ident Protocol is
designed to work as a server daemon, on a user's computer, where it
receives requests to a specified port, generally 113. The server
will then send a specially designed response that identifies the
username of the current user.Dialup hosts or shared shell servers
often provide ident to enable abuse to be tracked back to specific
users. In the case that abuse is handled on this host the concern
about trusting the ident daemon is mostly irrelevant. Spoofing of
the service and privacy concerns can be avoided by providing
varying cryptographically strong tokens instead of real usernames.
