It should also be possible to copy private keys out of ~user/.ssh and login to other machines as "user", assuming no password on the ssh key pair. It's probably best to assume that all your client machines are under the control of knowledgeable, malicious admins, and to put your important information somewhere other than your client machines. The only real way to "take back the night" is to force your users to connect to a service you control using an authentication mechanism you control. (e.g., Kerberos service tickets: accept no substitute. :) ) Prohibiting them from making any changes makes you responsible for every last customization. Delegating frees you up, but requires trust. Probably a good rule of thumb is to be generous doling out permissions when only one person will ever use the machine. Giving someone control over someone else's workspace should require consent of the controlled. One thing that is nagging at me: I read that sssd caches your credentials in a form such that they can be retrieved and provided to your "organizational system".  This seems like a vector for a knowledgeable, malicious admin to break out of the client machine and impersonate someone else to any domain service. Is there a safeguard against this?
