PAM_SET_DATA(3) 		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		  PAM_SET_DATA(3)

NAME
     pam_set_data -- set module information

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

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

     int
     pam_set_data(pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *module_data_name, void *data,
	 void (*cleanup)(pam_handle_t *pamh, void *data, int pam_end_status));

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_set_data function associates a pointer to an opaque object with an arbitrary string
     specified by the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context specified by the pamh argu-
     ment.

     If not NULL, the cleanup argument should point to a function responsible for releasing the
     resources associated with the object.

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

RETURN VALUES
     The pam_set_data function returns one of the following values:

     [PAM_BUF_ERR]	 Memory buffer error.

     [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]	 System error.

SEE ALSO
