     pam_group -- Group PAM module

     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_group [arguments]

     The group service module for PAM accepts or rejects users based on their membership in a
     particular file group.

     The following options may be passed to the pam_group module:

     deny	Reverse the meaning of the test, i.e., reject the applicant if and only if he or
		she is a member of the specified group.  This can be useful to exclude certain
		groups of users from certain services.

     fail_safe	If the specified group does not exist, or has no members, act as if it does exist
		and the applicant is a member.

		Specify the name of the group to check.  The default is ``wheel''.

     root_only	Skip this module entirely if the target account is not the superuser account.

		The user is asked to authenticate using his own password.
