            Bug ID: 2064
           Summary: Enable logging of client_user at INFO priority rather
                    than DEBUG2
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 5.8p2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: sshd
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org

One of the important features of hostbased authentication is that it
controls access from the specified client users. When such control is
desired, it is truly beneficial to supplement it with corresponding
information in the log. In other words, sshd log should get a message
that says which client user from which hostname and IP address logins
as which local user. In v5.8p2 such a message only comes from
auth_rhosts2_raw() in auth-rhosts.c and the message is at syslog
priority DEBUG2. Thus, it is not possible to get details about client
user without running sshd with log level as high as DEBUG2. It would be
highly desirable if this message or a similar message reporting
client_user had priority INFO.
