Abstract

By default, Linux systems keep a local registry of all their users. That registry is the /etc/passwd file. In this file, we can see a line for every registered user. So, in order to access a computer, we must have a user defined in that computer. This is OK when we have only a few computers, but if we have tens or hundreds of computers, it could be a nightmare to create new users or change a password in all of them.
