  Description     : A secure minimal identd replacement

slidentd is a minimal ident (RFC1413) daemon.  It is similar in purpose
to pidentd, which is installed with most linux systems, however its
design goals are somewhat different. The process used in slidentd is
that the daemon returns an obscure cookie, while logging the real data.
This means that the sysadmin can follow up requests from remote sites by
grepping through the logs for the cookie.
