pam_deny -- Deny PAM module SYNOPSIS
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_deny [options] DESCRIPTION
The deny authentication service module for PAM provides functionality for all the PAM categories: authentication, account management, session management and password management. In terms of the module-type parameter, these are the ``auth'', ``account'', ``session'', and ``password'' features. The Deny module will universally deny all requests. It is primarily of use during testing, and to ``null-out'' unwanted functionality. The following options may be passed to the 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. SEE ALSO
syslog(3), pam.conf(5), pam(8) BSD
