PAM_GUEST(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					      PAM_GUEST(8)

NAME
pam_guest -- Guest PAM module SYNOPSIS
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_guest [arguments] DESCRIPTION
The guest service module for PAM allows guest logins. If successful, the pam_guest module sets the PAM environment variable GUEST to the login name. The application can check this variable using pam_getenv(3) to differentiate guest logins from normal logins. The following options may be passed to the pam_guest module: guests=list Comma-separated list of guest account names. The default is ``guest''. A typical value for ftpd(8) would be ``anonymous,ftp''. nopass Omits the password prompt if the target account is on the list of guest accounts. pass_as_ruser The password typed in by the user is exported as the PAM_RUSER item. This is useful for applications like ftpd(8) where guest users are encouraged to use their email address as password. pass_is_user Requires the guest user to type in the guest account name as password. SEE ALSO
pam_get_item(3), pam_getenv(3), pam.conf(5), pam(8) AUTHORS
The pam_guest module and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD Project by ThinkSec AS and NAI Labs, 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. BSD

NAME
pam_ftpusers -- ftpusers PAM module SYNOPSIS
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_ftpusers [options] DESCRIPTION

Ftpusers Account Management Module The ftpusers account management component (pam_sm_acct_mgmt()), succeeds if and only if the user is listed in /etc/ftpusers. The following options may be passed to the authentication module: debug syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level. no_warn suppress warning messages to the user. These messages include reasons why the user's authentication attempt was declined. disallow reverse the semantics; pam_ftpusers will succeed if and only if the user is not listed in /etc/ftpusers.

The current version of this module parses an older format of the ftpusers(5) file and should not be used. ftpd(8) will keep using its built- in ftpusers(5) parsing code until the parser code in the pam module is fixed. BSD
