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.
