NAME

pam_rps - challenge-response authentication

 

SYNOPSIS

auth sufficient pam_rps.so

 

DESCRIPTION

pam_rps.so is designed to provide a true challenge-response authentication mechanism for PAM-enabled applications.

Without pam_rps, successful authentication can only occur for a user if the user has previously established an authentication token for use with the server. Using pam_rps removes this limitation.

 

ARGUMENTS

debug
Enable module debugging. The module will log its progress to syslog.
throw=number
The challenge issued to the user is derived from a random number. This argument allows the administrator to control which challenge will be presented to the user. This argument is meant for use only when debugging.

 

NOTES

Never use this module.
