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

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.

pam_group -- Group PAM module SYNOPSIS
[service-name] function-class control-flag pam_group [options] DESCRIPTION
The Group PAM module supports the account management function class. In terms of the function-class parameter, this is the ``account'' class. The Group account management module permits or denies users based on their membership to a particular group (or groups) specified with the group option. If no groups are specified the default group (``wheel'') will be used. The following options may be passed to this account management 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. group=groupname Specify the name of the group to check. This can be a comma-separated list (i.e. ``group=admin,wheel''). root_only Skip this module entirely if the target account is not the superuser account. ruser Check the membership of the applicant (PAM_RUSER), rather than the target account (PAM_USER) SEE ALSO
