pam_rhosts -- rhosts PAM module SYNOPSIS
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_rhosts [options] DESCRIPTION

Rhosts Authentication Module The Rhosts authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()), returns success if and only if the target user's UID is not 0 and the remote host and user are listed in /etc/hosts.equiv or in the target user's ~/.rhosts. 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. allow_root do not automatically fail if the target user's UID is 0. SEE ALSO

The pam_ftpusers module and this manual page were developed for the FreeBSD Project by ThinkSec AS and NAI Labs, the Security Research Divi- sion of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (``CBOSS''), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program. BUGS
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
