NAME
     pam_self -- Self PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_self [options]

DESCRIPTION
     The Self authentication service module for PAM provides functionality for only one PAM cate-
     gory: authentication.  In terms of the module-type parameter, this is the ``auth'' feature.

   Self Authentication Module
     The Self authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()), returns success if and only if
     the target user's user ID is identical with the current real user ID.  If the current real
     user ID is zero, authentication will fail, unless the allow_root option was specified.

     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 current real user ID is 0.

SEE ALSO
     getuid(2), pam.conf(5), pam(8)
