I've recently been seeing the following messages in my /var/log/authlog file:

Mar 28 19:24:46 labyrinth inetd[274]: connection from, serv
ice auth (tcp)
Mar 28 19:24:52 labyrinth inetd[282]: connection from, service
 auth (tcp)

Mar 28 19:25:16 labyrinth inetd[293]: connection from, servi
ce auth (tcp)
Mar 28 19:25:28 labyrinth inetd[300]: connection from, se
rvice auth (tcp)

What is the service "auth"?  Is this something checking against identd?  I've
recently enabled it, using a little piece of shell script.
