NAME
pam_rhosts_auth - authentication management PAM module using ruserok() SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1 DESCRIPTION
The rhosts PAM module, /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1, authenticates a user via the rlogin authentication protocol. Only pam_sm_authenticate() is implemented within this module. pam_sm_authenticate() uses the ruserok(3SOCKET) library function to authenticate the rlogin or rsh user. pam_sm_setcred() is a null function. /usr/lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so.1 is designed to be stacked on top of the /usr/lib/security/pam_unix.so.1 module for both the rlogin and rsh services. This module is normally configured as sufficient so that subsequent authentication is performed only on failure of pam_sm_authenticate(). The following option may be passed in to this service module: debug syslog(3C) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level. ATTRIBUTES

The interfaces in libpam() are MT-Safe only if each thread within the multi-threaded application uses its own PAM handle. SunOS 5.10 28 Oct 1996 pam_rhosts_auth(5)

NAME
libpam - PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module) library SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lpam [ library... ] #include <security/pam_appl.h> DESCRIPTION
Functions in this library provide routines for the Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM). INTERFACES
The shared object libpam.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined below. See intro(3) for additional information on shared object inter- faces. pam_acct_mgmt pam_authenticate pam_chauthtok pam_close_session pam_end pam_get_data pam_get_item pam_get_user pam_getenv pam_getenvlist pam_open_session pam_putenv pam_set_data pam_set_item pam_setcred pam_start pam_strerror FILES

The functions in libpam are MT-Safe only if each thread within the multithreaded application uses its own PAM handle. The pam_unix(5) module is no longer supported. Similar functionality is provided by pam_authtok_check(5), pam_authtok_get(5), pam_auth- tok_store(5), pam_dhkeys(5), pam_passwd_auth(5), pam_unix_account(5), pam_unix_auth(5), and pam_unix_session(5).
