PAM_GET_DATA(3) 		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		  PAM_GET_DATA(3)

     pam_get_data -- get module information

     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <security/pam_appl.h>

     pam_get_data(const pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *module_data_name, const void **data);

     The pam_get_data function looks up the opaque object associated with the string specified by
     the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context specified by the pamh argument.	A pointer
     to the object is stored in the location pointed to by the data argument.  If pam_get_data
     fails, the data argument is untouched.

     This function and its counterpart pam_set_data(3) are useful for managing data that are
     meaningful only to a particular service module.

     The pam_get_data function returns one of the following values:

			 Module data not found.

     [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]	 System error.

     pam(3), pam_set_data(3), pam_strerror(3)

     X/Open Single Sign-On Service (XSSO) - Pluggable Authentication Modules, June 1997.

     The pam_get_data function and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD Project by
     ThinkSec AS and Network Associates Laboratories, the Security Research Division of Network
     Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (``CBOSS''), as part of the
     DARPA CHATS research program.
