NAME
       pam_sepermit - PAM module to allow/deny login depending on SELinux enforcement state

SYNOPSIS
       pam_sepermit.so [debug] [conf=/path/to/config/file]

DESCRIPTION
       The pam_sepermit module allows or denies login depending on SELinux enforcement state.

       When the user which is logging in matches an entry in the config file he is allowed access
       only when the SELinux is in enforcing mode. Otherwise he is denied access. For users not
       matching any entry in the config file the pam_sepermit module returns PAM_IGNORE return
       value.

       The config file contains a list of user names one per line with optional arguments. If the
       name is prefixed with @ character it means that all users in the group name match. If it
       is prefixed with a % character the SELinux user is used to match against the name instead
       of the account name. Note that when SELinux is disabled the SELinux user assigned to the
       account cannot be determined. This means that such entries are never matched when SELinux
       is disabled and pam_sepermit will return PAM_IGNORE.

       See sepermit.conf(5) for details.
