Introduction

FreeIPA is mainly a directory service, where you can store information about your users, and their rights regarding login, become root, or just run a specific command as root on your systems that are joined your FreeIPA domain, and many more. Although this is the main feature of the service, there are optional components that can be very useful, like DNS and PKI - this makes FreeIPA an essential infrastructural part of a Linux-based system. It has a nice web-based GUI, and powerful command line interface.

In the next step we are going to clone a current Gorilla Password repository using git command:
