In general most of the information in these tabs is manipulating information under the directory /etc/sysconfig. There are a number of files there that pertain to the configuration of a RedHat based distro such as Fedora, CentOS, or RHEL.

For example, there’s a file called, ironically, authconfig which contains the choices from the dialogs in the screenshots above.

$ more /etc/sysconfig/authconfig
