[Bug 1984] New: Add Unix Domain Socket Forwarding
https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1984

Bug #: 1984
Summary: Add Unix Domain Socket Forwarding
Classification: Unclassified
Product: Portable OpenSSH
Version: 5.9p1
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: enhancement
Priority: P2
Component: ssh
AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs@mindrot.org
ReportedBy: spam.sub.atomic.fusion@gmail.com


Requesting support for connections to/from UNIX domain sockets for the
-D,-L, and -R. The support for hosting sshd on domain sockets and
connecting to these would also seem beneficial.
Domain sockets offer great flexibility when compared with traditional,
port based sockets. The OS can offer filesystem based access controls,
rather than each application that uses the sockets having to implement
it's own authentication/encryption scheme.
My specific use case is to securely forward the domain socket used to
connect the Tor daemon and it's GUI controller, Vidalia. This way I
could elegantly control the Tor daemon running on a headless server on
my desktop.
A patch for OpenSSH4.7 is here:
