console.apps - specify console-accessible privileged applications DESCRIPTION
The /etc/security/console.apps/ directory should contain one file per application that wishes to allow access to console users. The file- name should be the same as the servicename, and the contents are irrelevant; the file may be a zero-length file. The application that the file is used by is free to specify the contents in any way that is useful for it. SEE ALSO

pam_console_apply - set or revoke permissions for users at the system console SYNOPSIS
pam_console_apply [-r] DESCRIPTION
pam_console_apply sets or resets permissions on devices in the same manner as pam_console. If /var/run/console.lock exists, pam_console_apply will grant permissions to the user listed therein. If the lock file does not exist, permissions are reset to those listed in /etc/security/console.perms, which should be configured to set permissions on devices so that root owns them. ARGUMENTS
-r Signals pam_console_apply to reset permissions. The default is to set permissions so that the user listed in /var/run/console.lock has access to the devices, and to reset permissions if no such file exists. FILES
