NAME

system-auth - Common configuration file for PAMified services

 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/pam.d/system-auth

 

DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this configuration file is to provide common configuration file for all applications and service daemons calling PAM library.

The system-auth configuration file is included from all individual service configuration files with the help of the include directive.

 

NOTES

There should be no sufficient modules in the session part of system-auth file because individual services may add session modules after include of the system-auth file. Execution of these modules would be skipped if there were sufficient modules in system-auth file.

Conversely there should not be any modules after include directive in the individual service files in authaccount and password sections otherwise they could be bypassed.

 

BUGS

None known.
