PAM_LOGINUID(8) 			 Linux-PAM Manual			  PAM_LOGINUID(8)

NAME
       pam_loginuid - Record user's login uid to the process attribute

SYNOPSIS
       pam_loginuid.so [require_auditd]

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_loginuid module sets the loginuid process attribute for the process that was
       authenticated. This is necessary for applications to be correctly audited. This PAM module
       should only be used for entry point applications like: login, sshd, gdm, vsftpd, crond and
       atd. There are probably other entry point applications besides these. You should not use
       it for applications like sudo or su as that defeats the purpose by changing the loginuid
       to the account they just switched to.

OPTIONS
       require_auditd
	   This option, when given, will cause this module to query the audit daemon status and
	   deny logins if it is not running.

MODULE TYPES PROVIDED
       Only the session module type is provided.

RETURN VALUES
       PAM_SESSION_ERR
	   An error occurred during session management.

EXAMPLES
	   #%PAM-1.0
	   auth       required	   pam_unix.so
	   auth       required	   pam_nologin.so
	   account    required	   pam_unix.so
	   password   required	   pam_unix.so
